APU launches Alarm Contractors insurance program

Amwins Program Underwriters (“APU”), a managing general agency within the Underwriting division of AmWINS Group , has developed a new insurance solution dedicated to alarm contractors – including commercial general liability, professional liability, property and inland marine coverage.

The Alarm Contractors insurance program offers flexible coverage that can be tailored to meet the needs of specific alarm installation contractors including fire, burglar, residential/commercial/industrial, closed circuit television, home theater, and home automation.

The program is available in most states and underwritten on an admitted basis, with eligible accounts including commercial & residential, sales & service (fire, burglar, access control, CCTV) and installation. Fortegra Specialty Insurance, a provider of specialty insurance and warranty solutions, is the carrier partner for this solution.

“APU is committed to the program business space and the development of niche products that meet the needs of the marketplace. We are excited to launch this new program and we have great expectations for future growth.” – Ben Francavilla, President of Amwins Program Underwriters.

“We are excited to partner with Amwins on this project to provide our deep industry expertise in specialty insurance. The rapidly changing business and economic landscape has increased liability management costs, triggering the need for innovative and supplemental insurance solutions. Together, Amwins and Fortegra have developed a niche product tailored to meet the unique needs of alarm contractors and risk managers.” – Cooper Wallach, Vice President of Specialty Products and Programs at Fortegra.
