Continuous Flow Dry Kilns

We offer coverage for sawmill operations and standalone kiln-drying facilities.
Flooring Mills and Dimension Mills
Whether you provide hardwood floors for homes, construct wood beams for industrial structures, have five or three hundred employees, one location or many, you rely on insurance professionals to protect you. Our team will duck below the bough’s of your operation to investigate your risks and safety procedures to ensure the best coverage possible.
Workers Compensation is a major expenditure for pallet/box manufacturers and we will work to minimize this risk and remain OSHA compliant. In addition, we provide accident investigations and return-to-work programs to get employees back on the job as soon as possible.
There are about 5,000 lumber and plywood product manufacturers in the U.S., generating an annual revenue of $35 billion.

We will provide you with a custom insurance and risk control solution.
