The manufacturing industry is facing its fourth revolution (Industry 4.0) where manufacturers are leveraging technologies and embracing digital transformation to stay competitive and drive productivity gains. These, in turn, have resulted in a set of risks and challenges that manufacturers need to be aware of and protect against, such as:

  • New supply chain risks as manufacturers’ relationships with suppliers and customers become increasingly interdependent.

  • Greater exposure to cyber incidents as digitization is rapidly changing the factory with automation, robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, etc.

  • Additional risks of being contractually liable for financial losses incurred by customers, as manufacturers and customers are more closely linked for a greater part of the product lifecycle, especially if manufacturers add services such as maintenance and / or advice.

Chubb Assembly is a scalable and modular insurance solution that enables manufacturers to address these risks and challenges. The main coverage features include:

  • Liability and product liability: Provides broad protection against personal injury and property damage claims, premises liability claims and non-employee injuries, as well as first and third party product recall charges

  • Liability for manufacturing errors and omissions: Responds on behalf of a manufacturer to third party claims alleging financial or economic damage resulting from actual or suspected product defects, product failure or failure to perform a service in accordance with a contract.

  • Cyber ​​Enterprise Risk Management (ERM): Provides an incident response platform to mitigate and resolve first-party cyber incidents that may result in business disruption, data recovery costs and extortion negotiation, as well as coverage for civil liability arising from of a cyber incident.

Sir. Kevin stevens, Chief Industrial Practices Officer of Chubb in Asia Pacific, said: “Traditional insurance does not adequately respond to the evolving risks that the manufacturing industry faces given the pace of change it faces. The implementation of Industry 4.0 will result in increased exposures, and Chubb Assembly can help manufacturers address these risks through insurance coverage and loss mitigation through Pre and Post Disaster Services at Chubb. “
