Canadian manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers have experienced consistent growth driven by a strong domestic economy. In addition, retailers, both large and small, are starting to require that all manufacturers and/or distributors carry their own property and liability insurance in order to have their product on the retailers’ shelves.

One of the challenges, and also prominent characteristics of the Canadian manufacturing industry is its relationship with the U.S. as a key trading partner. This leads to a requirement of coverage for U.S. product exposures and physical locations, such as U.S. based sales and support offices.

Whatever your situation is, APRIL can offer you tailor-made solutions to meet your needs.
