McLardy McShane South East have protected the very businesses that collectively make up the Promotional Product and Promotional Marketing industry for many years. With extensive experience in advising and arranging insurances for these types of businesses, it made complete sense for us to partner with the industry’s peak body.

“The Promotional Product and Marketing industry has a unique set of challenges and risks, particularly in regards to liabilities associated with the importation of products from overseas. We’ve seen the evolvement of the products coming from China as well as an increase in presence from other countries competing for the Promotional Products share. We’ve got a lot of experience navigating these risks within the insurance markets and have a strong value proposition to the industry in general”

Shane Brady, Director McLardy McShane South East
