New York- (Business Wire)–Berkley Global Product Recall announced today that it has changed its name to Berkley Product Protection and now offers broader coverage. In addition to product recalls and contamination, the new scope of liability applies to a variety of medium and high risks, including manufacturers, wholesalers and importers. The new coverages — general liability and excess/umbrella liability — are primarily offered on an admitted basis, while recall coverage will continue to be offered on a non-admitted basis. While the new liability products complement the current recall coverage, each product is offered as a separate policy.
Luis Rivera, President of Berkley Product Protection, commented: “We are pleased to expand our capabilities in market areas that are a natural complement to our product recall business and bring added value to our customers. Berkley Product Protection is building upon our expertise Dedicated coverage where it really matters. We are building a strong foundation with a knowledgeable and talented team and look forward to expanding our product portfolio and serving our valued business partners.”
