What is Light Manufacturing Insurance?

Light manufacturing businesses are exposed to an array of potential risks, several of which last well beyond when a product is made. In addition to protecting their own inventory and stock, these businesses must also safeguard against the possibility of facing a liability lawsuit that accuses them of making an error.
