Metallurgy industry: a future-oriented sector
As one of the most important industrial sectors of the global economy, the metallurgy industry is shaped by dynamic developments in different areas. To overcome these challenges, companies need a partner that knows exactly what type of risks the industry faces.
Metallurgy companies have to deal with high industry-specific energy requirements and an increasing globalisation, which both come with significant fluctuations in price. At the same time – as a further result of globalisation but also due to stricter environmental requirements – the pressure to innovate for foundries and workshops is growing. The complicated mutual dependencies with various other industries, such as the automotive industry, the consumer goods industry and the construction sector, are an additional challenge.

Mastering the core risks of the metallurgy industry
In light of the high investment volumes in the steel and metallurgy industry, business interruptions and failures are amongst the core risks of the industry. Accidents or defects in the plants have enormous potential losses, for example from damage to the ovens or the emission of molten masses. Furthermore, an accident usually leads to a massive disruption of operations. The complex international supply chains are interrupted, meaning that the consequential damages of an accident can have serious effects. Funk is by your side to find the right risk concept for your business. As a long-term strategic partner, we do not only support our clients in insurance and claims management, but also as a risk consultant with a holistic view of the company development.
