The Challenges

Weathering the Storm: Why Every NC Manufacturer Needs Comprehensive Insurance

Yet despite their output and optimism, manufacturers face an almost daily gauntlet of risks that can grind operations to a costly halt.

Like an unexpected gear jam in a smooth-running factory line, disasters and liabilities lurk around every corner.

 Severe weather events like floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes can cause extensive property damage and loss of inventory.

Cyberattacks and data breaches expose valuable intellectual property and customer data. Supply chain disruptions leave assembly lines empty. Defective products trigger expensive lawsuits and erode consumer trust. Workplace injuries lead to large workers’ compensation claims. Pollution releases violate environmental regulations.

Even a small hiccup can completely stop production, hemorrhaging money and threatening business survival.

According to the North Carolina Industrial Commission, the average workers’ compensation claim costs over $50,000, and even mundane slips and falls can warrant six-figure lawsuits when factoring in legal fees and medical bills. For small and mid-sized manufacturers, just one serious accident or natural disaster can destroy everything without warning.

Safeguarding your property, finances, and reputation with adequate insurance coverages provides an indispensable safety net.

The right insurance partner fills gaps that would otherwise sink North Carolina manufacturers, keeping you solvent, empowered, and focused on growth even in difficult circumstances. 

Think of it as bolstering your business’s resilience – an ironclad foundation upon which to keep building and expanding, come rain or shine.

Getting The Right Coverage

Building a Protective Wall: Understanding Key Commercial Insurance Coverages for NC Manufacturers

Manufacturing is an inherently hazardous occupation full of heavy machinery and controlled substances. Inventory worth hundreds of thousands sits vulnerable to flood and fire. Customer data faces compromise through cyber intrusions. Workers suffer injuries on a daily basis.

In this high-stakes environment, North Carolina manufacturers need sufficient walls of protection to prevent existential crises. The most vital coverages include:

The “factory fence” keeping third-party accidents and lawsuits at bay.

General liability coverage pays for others’ medical bills, legal judgments, advertising injuries, and attorney fees arising from customer injuries or property damage that occur on your business premises or because of your operations. Costs average $1,500 – $2,500 annually

“From roof trusses to production line,” this coverage protects your building, equipment, machinery, furniture, inventory, and more against damage and theft.

Average premiums range from 0.5% to 1.5% of total property value

One defective bolt can lead to hundreds of thousands in legal judgments and lawyers’ fees from injured customers.

This coverage defends and settles lawsuits over unsafe products, shielding your finances. Premiums generally run $1,000 – $2,000 yearly

While property insurance covers physical damage, business interruption insurance replaces income lost whenever covered disasters shut down operations.

It protects profits that would erode in the downtime. Typical costs range from 0.5% to 1.5% of annual revenue.

This mandatory coverage serves as a safety net for your greatest asset – your workforce.

If an employee gets injured on the job, it pays their medical expenses and lost wages so they can recover and return to work. Rates average about $1.25 per $100 of payroll

Added Protection

Additional Coverages for a Better Risk Management Strategy

Comprehensive protection also accounts for emerging threats – policies can include specialized coverages such as the following

From break room to board room, EPLI manages disputes like harassment allegations, wrongful termination lawsuits, and discrimination against protected classes.

Applicable to any manufacturer with employees, annual premiums run $500 – $1,500

In our digital age, data breaches threaten every business large and small.

Cyber liability insurance responds to hacking incidents and sensitive data exposures, paying to notify victims, restore data, handle public relations, negotiate with ransomware attackers, and cover legal costs.

Expect annual premiums around $1,500 – $5,000

For an extra layer of catastrophic coverage, umbrella insurance kicks in when damages exceed limits across other policies.

It prevents bankrupting situations not fully addressed in standard contracts. Average yearly rates run 0.1% to 0.5% of total coverage underneath.

For manufacturers offering engineering or design services, errors and omissions insurance handles damages arising from negligent designs, blueprints, or calculations.

Premiums cost around $1,000 – $3,000 annually

Equipment doesn’t always stay put in the warehouse.

When tools hit the road for installation jobs or service calls, inland marine insurance protects them against damage, accidents, or theft. Costs vary based on the value of covered equipment.
