Delivering a Comprehensive Insurance Program for Flooring Mills/Dimension Mills

There are many different scales of operations in the flooring and dimension mills sector that serve diverse business lines. Some firms may provide hardwood floors for homes and small office buildings, while others construct wood beams for industrial structures, or work on multi-state operations. Whether a mill has five or three hundred employees, has multiple locations or operates one facility, these businesses, their owners and employees rely on insurance professionals to properly protect them. That’s where you and the team at Continental Underwriters come in.

As an MGA and wholesale specialist, we can provide your agency with the customized insurance programs and support your clients need to address the unique risks inherent in this sector of the forest products industry. We work with leading insurance carriers to deliver a comprehensive and competitive program as well as to implement risk management and risk assessment services to help prevent accidents and injuries.

Our seasoned professionals will work with you to help uncover your client’s exposures to transfer and mitigate risk. This includes getting a clear picture of an insured’s entire operation including: determining whether any type of manufacturing processes other than that involving wood takes place on the premises; whether flammables are used on site, or if flammable finishes are applied to flooring or other products; whether any heat processing work is performed; and if risk assessments are in place and followed to prevent incidents such as having wooden beams accidentally damaged while being transported to a customer, or an employee getting injured on a miter saw. This type of analysis only scratches the surface of the types of issues we will assess with you so that we can pinpoint exposures and help protect your insured’s business, assets and employees.

Our portfolio of coverages includes: Property, Inland Marine, General Liability, Commercial Auto, Workers Compensation and Employers Liability, Commercial Umbrella, Employment Practices Liability, Equipment Breakdown Coverage, and Crime Coverage.
