As part of a concerted drive by its management team to extend the services it offers to its Approved Installers, FENSA has now launched its own brand of specialised business related insurance products.

FENSA Business Insurance Services is a trading name of Jelf Insurance Brokers Ltd and is now offering a range of insurance policies tailored specifically for FENSA Approved Installers that includes: Public Liability, Employers Liability, Professional Indemnity, Cyber Insurance, Tools Insurance, Business Insurance and Van/Fleet Insurance. All policies have been developed and selected with the needs of installers of windows, doors, conservatories and related products.

Anda Gregory, Managing Director of GGF Commercial Group, which includes FENSA, says that once again they are responding to demand: “Our Approved Installers highlighted to us they were keen on having tailored insurance products available to them through FENSA. We’ve listened and have teamed up with a fellow market leader, Jelf, to provide the cover that our installation businesses require.

“We see this as part of our duty to provide industry leading products available exclusively to FENSA Approved Installers and to provide as many support services as possible from a single, reliable and trustworthy source.”

Paul Buckle, Managing Director of Schemes and Affinities at Jelf said: “We’re delighted to be working with FENSA to provide insurance that meets the needs of their Approved Installers. We’ve worked closely with FENSA to understand the specialist risks that face installers and have developed a range of solutions to protect against those risks. We look forward to developing our relationship with FENSA and making a success of FENSA Business Insurance Services for its Approved Installer members.”

The provision of insurance services adds to established benefits available to FENSA Approved Installers that include: Fuelcards with discounts on petrol; discounts at all Trade Point & B&Q Stores across the country; glazing Industry-specific training courses & apprenticeships; free BFRC Licences; homeowner finance; and many others, as Chris Beedel, FENSA’s Director of Membership, explains: “FENSA Business Insurance Services is the latest in a long line of FENSA benefits that we’re bringing to our Approved Installers and there’s a lot more in the pipeline over the next few months. As the current TV advertising campaign demonstrates, FENSA is a dynamic, pro-active organisation that does far more than just issue FENSA certificates, although we have issued approaching 14 million of those too!”
