Travelers helps protect your manufacturing business

From raw material suppliers to finished end-product producers, the manufacturing industry is a vastly important contributor to the U.S. economy.

In fact, if the U. S. manufacturing industry was a country, it would be the 10th largest economy in the world.

According to the Manufacturing Institute* in 2012, U.S. manufacturing:

  • Contributed $1.87 trillion to the economy - 11.9% of the overall GDP
  • Supported an estimated 17.2 million jobs - about 1 in 6 private sector employees
  • Drove productivity growth by more than 2.5 times the rate of the service sector

As large as the U.S. manufacturing industry is as a whole, many individual manufacturers contribute to its size and breadth.

Our IndustryEdge® line of products includes tailored coverages unique to the risks faced by manufacturers, as well as international endorsements to cover overseas exposures.

Maintaining Your Brand & Reputation Tips:

  1. Be proactive by taking steps to protect your business.  Lawsuits do happen.

Today, the definition of supply chain has broadened to include the entire lifecycle of a product.
