Berkley Global Product Recall today announced it has changed its name to Berkley Product Protection and now offers broader coverages. In addition to product recall and contamination, new liability coverages are available for a wide array of medium to high hazard risks, including manufacturers, wholesalers and importers. The new coverages - general liability and excess/umbrella liability – are primarily offered on an admitted basis, while the recall coverages will continue to be offered on a non-admitted basis. While the new liability offerings complement the current recall coverages, each are offered as stand-alone policies.
Luis Rivera, president of Berkley Product Protection, commented, “We are pleased to be expanding our capabilities in areas of the market that are natural complements to our product recall business and bring added value to our clients. Berkley Product Protection offers specialized coverage where our expertise truly matters. We are building upon a strong foundation with a knowledgeable and talented team and look forward to growing our product portfolio and serving our valued business partners.”
