Property & Liability Insurance Program



Bankers Insurance is dedicated to manufacturing operations and carries decades of experience in this industry.

Key Features – What makes us different:

  • Transparency: Our proprietary process leads manufacturers through the decisions that make up their insurance price.  Unlike other methods, we educate clients on their risks and disclose how those risks affect pricing.
  • Cover What You Want: We help clients understand their tolerance for risk and design an insurance program to cover the rest.
  • Time Savings: Convert unproductive time “quoting” policies into revenue-producing activity.  Our process ensures each business is positioned beforehand to receive optimal rates from insurance companies.
  • Risk Assessment: A thorough review of risks and systematic means to address each.
