Everest Indemnity Expands Distribution of Environmental Insurance Products

Everest Indemnity Insurance has announced that it will now offer its environmental insurance products directly to the wholesale and retail markets. Formerly these products were only available through an exclusive arrangement with a managing general agent.

For more than 10 years, Everest has provided environmental-related insurance products and services. This product line provides pollution liability coverage for contractors, professional environmental consultants, environmental contractors, motor vehicle, waste facilities and site specific pollution.

Everest also offers a full array of claims and loss control services, including the ability to access a certified industrial hygienist with environmental consultant work experience in managing environmental abatement projects.

Daryl Bradley, president of Everest's US insurance operations, said: "Everest remains committed to providing superior products to our wholesale and retail community. I thank those who supported us in the past and with this positive change, look forward to a continuing relationship on a more direct basis."
