Factory Insurance

Factory insurance is an insurance policy that provides financial coverage to the factory owners against unforeseen loss or damage caused to the structure of the factory as well as the stored goods. However, it depends on the type of coverage the buyer has opted for. Factory owners should consider purchasing this insurance plan as it not only provides coverage for damages caused to the goods kept inside the premises but also outside the premises.
