Equipment Breakdown Insurance

Businesses thrive by delivering products and services to customers on time. An interruption to this flow is often caused by the breakdown of vital equipment or machinery that keeps production moving.

RSA understands the negative ramifications of work stoppage – both financial and reputational. Equipment Breakdown Insurance (EBI) provides protection against the physical and financial loss resulting from equipment breakdown.

RSA is a leader in engineering services and has demonstrated technical expertise in EBI. Our EBI products cover all classes of business and we offer customized products to meet your clients’ needs. Our book of business ranges from complex, global risks to small-and medium-sized enterprises. Regardless of the account size, we know that time is money and we make it a priority to resolve claims quickly and efficiently.
