Manufacturing Practice Group

Owning and operating a manufacturing operation of any size or industry is no small feat. Which is why it is critical that you partner with an agency who will do more than just help you secure a commercial insurance policy.

Because Your Company Needs More Than Just Insurance

After 150 years in the industry, we understand that it takes more than just a quality insurance policy to protect your organization properly. It requires a committed business partner and insurance broker who will take their time to analyze each risk you face as a company today and in the future.

One of our key differentiators is our hands-on risk management process, which was developed to strategically identify, assess, address, mitigate, and transfer risk. Through this approach, we are able to provide our clients with the knowledge they need to make informed and deliberate decisions about how to best protect their manufacturing operation.

We Deliver Customized Risk Management Programs and Services to Our Clients, Including:

  • Asset Protection
  • Employee Health & Safety
  • Product Liability
  • Auto/Fleet Safety Risk
  • Executive Risk
  • Data Privacy & Security
  • Environmental Risk
  • Supply Chain Risk
  • Regulatory/Government Risk
  • International Risk


Risk Management Roundtables
Each discussion is led by an experienced industry professional and tackles a relevant and timely topic using real-world examples that pertain to the manufacturing industry, including subjects like OSHA regulations, workers’ compensation mod rate monitoring, fleet safety, claims management, business interruption, and disaster recovery.

Routine Risk Analysis & Risk Profile Reviews
Our team is available to assist your organization with the evaluation of your current loss prevention programs, safety policies and procedures, as well as enhance your company’s risk profile to “Best in Class” levels. Our assessment process is divided into three distinct sections – Regulatory Compliance, Overall Safety, and Loss Source Potential.

Risk Management Center
Our manufacturing clients also receive exclusive access to our secure risk management portal which hosts a variety of risk management and insurance documents, including:

  • Sample forms and policies
  • Online training programs
  • Training materials
  • Quizzes

  • Job hazard analysis


While our agency and the world we live in has evolved over the last century and a half, one thing has stayed the same – our ability to support and safeguard manufacturers successfully. The manufacturing practice group at Fred C. Church originally formed back in 1865 when we provided coverage to a thriving textile manufacturer in Massachusetts. Since then, our specialty areas have grown beyond fabric, allowing us to work closely with manufacturers in a variety of industries, including:

  • Plastics
  • Chemicals
  • Concrete
  • Metal Fabricating
  • Lumber
  • Equipment & Machinery
  • Aerospace & Defense
  • Engineering Services & Design
