TIA unveils insurance program
The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is working with the Universal Underwriters Insurance Co. to offer insurance coverage for its members.
Under the program, qualifying TIA members can receive coverage for employee benefits, property and casualty, pollution liability, business life insurance and workers' compensation.
The program is available nationwide. "However, the availability of each type of coverage offered in every state cannot be guaranteed give current legal environment and market conditions," says TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.
As part of the deal, Universal Underwriters will be the sole recommended business insurance carrier for TIA, with the exception of the current product liablity insurance program in place for retreaders.
The company insures more than 1,200 dealers, "so they understand the needs of our industry," says TIA President Tom Raben.
For more information, TIA suggests calling Marsha Thompson at (800) 840-8842.
