Posted on 17 Aug 09

Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) has recently rolled out two new products, Pest Control and Security Services “The Guardian.” Providing one of the broadest coverage forms in the market these products offer comprehensive coverage for both niches.

Pest control eligible classes include operators specializing in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings who have a minimum of four years in the industry and a workforce of less than 50 employees. Security Service eligible classes include armed and unarmed security services, alarm monitoring and installation services, security consultants, armored car services and personal security for executives.

Bob Wehrle, Vice President of Underwriting remarked, “We are pleased to announce our enhanced insurance product which offers broad coverage, including pollution liability, tailored to the needs of structural pest control operators.”

John Doyle, Vice President of Underwriting remarked, “PHLY is excited to enter into the security services insurance sector. Insuring this class of business was a natural progression given our experience in writing risks that provide their own security or are contractually responsible for security services, such as professional sports teams and stadiums, concerts and event promoters, retail shopping centers and hotels.”
