Expert support, all risks protection

Our Erection All-Risks policies are designed to insure the specific business responsibilities that can arise out of contract(s) for the supply, installation or repair of machinery.

With our deep knowledge of the construction and engineering sector, we’re able to tailor cover to suit a wide range of customer needs – from small installation contracts to complex, larger machinery and plant installations.

Pragmatic risk consultancy
