Allianz Engineering has been awarded the status of preferred partner with Jelf to provide a new three-year facility for the majority of its Engineering Insurance and Inspection business.
Allianz has already worked with Jelf for five years and the new arrangement, following a competitive tender process, was secured after Allianz rebuilt the scheme with refreshed wordings, competitive pricing and bespoke support services.
As part of the agreement, Allianz Engineering will also provide access to a large programme of training and promotional material, as well as access to its market leading engineering experts.
The facility will also be available to members of Purple Partnership – the Jelf owned national network for independent insurance brokers.
Simon Cuthbert, regional business manager, Allianz Engineering, said: “This is an excellent result for our business and we are very pleased that we can continue the long-standing association we have with Jelf. The fact that we have been able to retain this scheme following a very competitive tender process serves to demonstrate the quality and strength of our engineering proposition.”
Gary Chandler, Jelf Director, said "We are delighted that we are able to continue to offer Allianz’s engineering insurance and inspection services to our clients following an extensive review. From our previous experience of Allianz, we have been extremely impressed with the professionalism, technical expertise and service levels that they have provided."
