PartnerOne Environmental has achieved considerable growth in 2016. In addition to establishing many new partnerships, we have received a record number of submissions and grown our team considerably. We have pulled together some products and classes of business where we’ve seen the most opportunity over the year. These are areas where we have been able to provide leading coverage at competitive pricing.

Thanks for your support this year! We appreciate your business and look forward to our shared success in 2017.

Combined form GL/Pollution/Professional for Asbestos Abatement and Fire & Water Restoration Contractors

Asbestos abatement and fire & water contractors have had a busy year―with thousands of remediation and renovation projects around the country, there is a clear need for quality coverage for these contractors. Not only can we offer leading package coverage with extremely fast turnarounds, we bind the majority of these accounts we receive, which means if you send us your submission, there’s a good chance we’ll write it with you.

Dealer & repair businesses present a great opportunity to write new accounts. In addition to the premises pollution exposures ranging from oil/grease spills, hydraulic lifts, and chemical storage, these locations almost always house storage tanks that need coverage as well.

CPL/E&O has been a top seller for us this year and we are already seeing many solid opportunities for these accounts heading into 2017. Learn more >>
