Bridge and Chubb join forces to support the metal fabrications industry

Press release

16 May 2012

TWO insurance industry experts have joined forces to provide the leading insurance solution for metal fabricators and processors globally.

Bridge Insurance Brokers Ltd and Chubb Insurance have teamed up to offer MasterPackage MetalPro, which delivers high spec cover for precision engineers, metal fabricators and metal processors.

MetalPro offers the metal industry a combination of benefits such as a contract which is warranty free, commercial products and services errors and omissions liability as standard, no under-insurance penalty if you link your values and built-in commodity price protection and automatic cover for exposure to supply chain risk.

Gavin Ruben, director at Bridge, said: “We have been working with Chubb for quite some time to ensure MetalPro is the leading insurance solution for the metal fabrication and process industry.

“The new product has been developed following extensive research and development, including research into emerging risks and exposure, customer experience and broker feedback.

“We don’t believe one size fits all so MetalPro has the flexibility to cover the specific needs of a business and it is the only package policy on the market to offer explosion as well as machinery breakdown cover as standard.”

MetalPro includes risk reduction services such as thermographic imaging and health and safety training.
