A pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, located near a residential area, suffered a major explosion. City officials refused to grant a permit to the owners to rebuild. Additionally, it would have taken two years to obtain FDA approval to move the facility to another location. The company would have gone bankrupt if they were forced to halt production for two years.
We negotiated with the insurance company, which agreed to a special coverage provision in the Extra Expense policy to buy a competing company. This gave the client a facility in which to manufacture their product, resulting in a larger market share and a thriving business. Without our help, the client would have gone out of business.
