Success in the manufacturing sector is dependent upon businesses meeting and addressing a number of challenges.
Irish manufacturing has become increasingly diverse with high tech, premium quality products becoming ever more prominent. More “traditional” output nevertheless continues to occupy a position of significance. Manufacturers in all spheres have to work harder and smarter to maintain competitiveness.
European legislation is also making its mark, with product safety a focus that forces companies to monitor the quality control of their suppliers’ processes as well as their own. Another legislative development particularly affecting this sector concerns liability for environmental damage.
From commercial combined policies to specialised insurances against complex risks, AIG offers one of the widest ranges of policies in the Irish market and a truly multinational presence.
- Our employers liability cover can help managers reduce workplace accidents with a powerful health and safety training system combined with medical rehabilitation to help employees recover and return to the workplace.
- Directors & officers cover is important in this sector given the relatively high accident rates and the risk of insolvencies or shareholder disputes drawing a focus on management in tough economic times.
- With more offices in our global network than any other insurer and our capabilities in areas like claims servicing, employee business travel, products liability and marine cargo, we’re already wherever you want to trade.
- Increasing regulation, public sensitivity and focus on climate change present new challenges and environmental exposures for manufacturers. AIG is an industry leader in this field, helping customers uphold environmental standards through risk mitigation and insurance.
