Equipment Breakdown Insurance/Inspection Services

Providing UK and Ireland businesses with comprehensive equipment breakdown solutions, including equipment breakdown coverage for costs associated with the repair and replacement of vital fixed equipment, and help conforming to applicable workplace equipment health and safety legislation.

We live and work in a world where technology is constantly evolving; creating new forms of machinery and equipment, applications for them, and requirements for businesses to conform to applicable workplace equipment regulatory requirements.

Whilst technology brings many benefits, ever more reliance on electronic components and software is increasing the risk to businesses of equipment breakdown (failures, sudden and unforeseen damage (SUD) and defects) and regulatory non-compliance.
