Reich Insurance | February 25, 2020

Manchester-based Reich Insurance has a new proposition for water treatment professionals, who the broker found are often unknowingly exposed due to a specific exclusion for legionella and efficacy. “As a leading independent insurance broker in the UK, we are constantly striving to develop new products that put our clients first, providing them with the specialist support and best possible protection,” said Reich chief executive Simon Taylor. “We see the water treatment sector as a growing but challenging area given the strict legislation, hence our desire to invest in building a tailored insurance offering. Reich’s bespoke insurance package can include coverage for employers, public, and product liability; legionella outbreak; efficacy; professional indemnity; damage to items being worked on; business interruption; property – buildings, contents, money, and glass; vehicle, fleet, and goods in transit; cyber; as well as directors’ and officers’ liability.
