It’s often the case with the manufacturing trade, that until you have experienced the benchmark of expertise DPI offer, clients are commonly unaware they are not receiving the level of service and advice they deserve.
DPI Insurance has a depth of knowledge and an affinity with Joinery manufacturers, in fact one of our Directors used to be one! We are proud to insure hundreds of woodworking businesses the length and breadth of the county and the Joinery industry is one of our specialisms. DPI recognise the difference between understanding the Health and Safety risk of a spindle moulder compared to a CNC router, or how a company manages and disposes of its wood working waste.
Metal Workers and Engineers have an industry specific set of requirements which DPI Insurance possess an extensive knowledge of. Whether it’s accounting for replacement lead times on key plant and machinery, understanding the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metals or the Health and Safety pitfalls of site welding, our qualified broking team are on hand to offer professional advice and guidance. At DPI we understand these challenges and are perfectly placed to advise on such matters.
Plastic products are integral to our daily lives, whether it’s point of sale leaflet holders, the bags we carry our shopping in or the windows we look out from, plastics are an inescapable and essential product in the modern world. Manufacturers within this industry face a unique set of risks such as the hazards associated with machinery left operating unattended overnight, the effect of COSHH (Control of Substances Harmful to Health) and manual handling which according to the HSE accounts for approximately 25% of workplace injuries in the plastics sector.
