Manufacturers Insurance - from Edison Ives

Manufacturers Insurance

At Edison Ives we understand your industry and we know the right markets to go to, meaning you get a quote quickly, and at a competitive price.

All the policies we arrange are tailored to your unique needs, and we can assist start-ups or large Limited companies.

Expert Insurance Solutions

As a manufacturer, you are exposed to supply chain issues, legal disputes – in respect to personal injury or property damage, as well as everything from fire to flood. Claims can be extremely high and without the right insurance can leave you in trouble. The right policy is there to protect you. It is important to note that even an allegation can incur significant costs to defend. Without the right cover you will be left to foot the bill.

It is vital to realise that Insurance isn’t just about price. We want to make sure that if an insurance claim arises you are protected. When a claim happens, it is often a distressing experience. We will work with you to achieve a fair, favourable claim resolution whilst minimising disputes. Throughout the process you will have our direct contact details so that we are on hand to help.

Manufacturers Insurance Advice

Supply Chain Risk Management
    • Choose suppliers carefully, and conduct regular audits, to ensure that their commitment to business interruption prevention matches yours.
    • Check the Moody’s or S&P rating of potential suppliers.
    • Verify suppliers’ insurance cover. Remember, a certificate of insurance is evidence of insurance.
    • Clearly define contract scopes and draft contracts carefully with the assistance of specialised legal professional.
    • Work with Edison Ives to understand the extent of your exposure, and create a business interruption worksheet
    • Re-evaluate the worksheet on a regular basis to account for changes in the market or your business model.
    • When there is a global event, examine your supply chain to see if any part of it might be affected.
    • Be aware of developing risks, such as cyber security.After identifying risks, put a plan into place.

While it is easy to prioritise speed over follow-through, identifying risks is of little use if steps are not taken to mitigate these risks. Plans might include these components or others, business continuity plan, geographical diversification of servers, plan to relocate business to an alternate location, sourcing of goods from alternate suppliers.

Engaging supply chain partners and insurers in your effort to minimise supply chain risk and regularly reassessing exposures can help you to successfully manage your business’s risk from beginning to end of the supply chain. Edison Ives can help you every step of the way.

Emma Brewster Business Owner
Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value
The leaseholders in my building recently took on the challenge of becoming freeholders and with the completion date looming, we needed to secure new building insurance. I ventured onto a comparison site and had a million calls from brokers offering their services and quotes etc. Of all, Tony from Edison Ives, was the most diligent, professional and responsive. Tony is very personable and made sure I had absolutely everything I needed (I ask A LOT of questions!) to make an informed decision along with a paper trail for reference and transparency. Based on my experience with Tony, I would definitely recommend Edison Ives and their services.

Laura Musgrove Business Owner
Over the Moon

I was referred to Edison Ives by the British Insurance Brokers Association and Tony was able to find an insurer that reduced my landlord cover from over £1300 to £495. I was over the moon and Tony made it all easy and straightforward. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Marcus Whawell Landlord
Right to Manage Insurance

As leaseholders we took the rights to manage our own flats. Not knowing anything about what needs to be done, Edison Ives (Tony) was of very good advice and guidance in taking out a building insurance for our flats. Clearly the personalised and trustworthy approach made us decide to work with them (as well as the money they made us save). I would highly recommend them to anyone taking on their rights to manage! Thanks.

I had a lot of problems trying to insure my rental new build flat, these guys were very courteous and solved the problem for me at a good price.

Sam W Property Owner
Absolutely Five Star!

I found Edison Ives while searching for home insurance which would provide cover for a house which shares the property with a home-based boarding kennel business. Tony was able to find me a very competitive package, and walked me through the whole process step by step. Tony could not have done more to help me, and for a new-start business his help and advice was invaluable. Absolutely Five Star!

Sarah Grint Boarding Kennel Owner
Exceptional Service

Customer service exceptional. Thanks to Edison Ives we got a competitive price for our block of flats insurance. Following that we had a claim and Ged helped us with this from start to finish. I would highly recommend.

Bridget McKinnon Property Owner
Really very helpful

Really very helpful. After having a claim in 2016, our premiums were extremely high. Edison Ives have found us a higher policy at a cheaper rate that our previous insurers.

Anonymous Fish & Chip Shop Owner
Who knew insurance could be fun?!

Ged gave me comprehensive advice in simple English and I now feel reassured that I have the right cover at the right price. He understands me and my business and is a joy to deal with. Who knew insurance could be fun?!

Ellan Campbell-Swann Owner - PR and Events Agency
Easy to deal with and professional

Very easy to deal with and very professional. So much better than dealing with the massive impersonal call centres, and Edison Ives still came back with a better premium. As with all insurance, it's not the buying but the claims process that's important. I get the feeling that should a claim be necessary they will do everything possible to support.

T.J. Property Owner - Residents Association Chair

I highly recommend using Edison Ives and specifically Tony Suryavansi. He will take the time to listen and answer any questions you may have about your policy and should you need him in the future, Tony makes himself readily available for ongoing advice.

Richard Gould Property Investor
Really Helpful

I can highly recommend Edison Ives. They have got me a really good price on my restaurant insurance and been really helpful throughout. Thanks a lot, I'll be moving all my insurance to them this year.

Tom Restaurant Owner
Made it simple

I find insurance documents long, complex and full of jargon. Thankfully Edison Ives' picked out the key points and communicated them clearly.

Amarjit Builders merchants
Thanks

I had been with my broker for a number of years and I never realised I was paying more than I needed to. Edison Ives went through my existing policy, highlighted that I was under insured, and then they managed to source a new package that provided a lot more cover at a similar price.
