For well over three decades, PBL has been providing the manufacturing marketplace with comprehensive and affordable insurance programs. Our business evolved as insurers were not comfortable with this class in the early years, and this hindered manufacturing clients from accessing the necessary insurance capacity at affordable terms. PBL, in conjunction with various insurer partners, worked to educate them on manufacturing accounts to make them comfortable and knowledgeable about this class, and we continue to work with many insurers who can provide competitive terms and programs for all manufacturing classes. In fact, PBL Insurance still has a metal workers’ program underwritten by one of our original insurers. Today’s highly skilled, technology driven metal worker has unique exposures for property and liability risks. Over the years, our specialized knowledge and experience has allowed us to offer risk management and insurance programs that assist clients with virtually any risks associated with this manufacturing sector including:

  • Worldwide product coverage
  • Product recall
  • Trade credit insurance
  • Equipment breakdown
  • Cross border service
  • US workers’ compensation
  • Manufacturers’ Error and Omission


We provide solutions tailored to our clients’ requirements on a proprietary policy platform. This has enabled us to build a large diverse client base with global presence. At PBL, credibility is key, and we ensure it by:

  • Providing coverage for this class for over 30 years;
  • Being located in one of the largest manufacturing centers in North America;
  • Providing access to insurers who cover complex manufacturing risks; and,
  • Continuing to focus on addressing the needs of this evolving class.
