Through our thorough understanding of all aspects of manufacturing as well as our global network of experts, we can answer these questions and deliver truly comprehensive risk management.

The Gallagher Difference

The Challenge

A mid-sized industrial machinery manufacturer does not have limited indemnity in its supply contract.

Our Action

We analyzed their contract and determined the potential exposure for the client. We were able to put specific policies in place to address these coverage gaps.

The Result

Our client had a claim while loading a finished product. The delivery of the equipment was delayed by more than three months. The contract had a specific delivery date requirement, and as a result, their customer filed a suit. The errors and omissions (E&O) policy we put in place covered the claim for $1.3 million.
