San Francisco, May 19, 2015 — CNA and the California Manufacturers & Technology Association (CMTA) today announced that CNA has been chosen as the endorsed business insurance carrier of choice by the CMTA.
As a world leader in advancing safety and writing coverages across 90 percent of all manufacturing classes, CNA was selected by the CMTA, working with broker Warren G. Bender Co., because of its depth of experience in the industry, financial strength and expertise in coordinating end-to-end coverage programs for today's modern manufacturers.
"This endorsement affirms CNA's positon as the premier provider of insurance coverages, claim and risk control services for manufacturers," said Franklin Maccotan, director and industry leader, Manufacturing, CNA. "CNA's goals align with the CMTA's mission of helping California manufacturers protect the safety of their employees and the public, as well as the assets of its members. The endorsement allows CNA to be even more responsive to the unique needs and concerns of the manufacturing community."

"CMTA is proud to announce its partnership with CNA to deliver a premier and cost-competitive commercial insurance package to its members," said Dorothy Rothrock, president, CMTA. "California manufacturers are the backbone of our state's economy and innovation. Because comprehensive insurance protection and effective risk control support is a critical component to operating in California, the CMTA looked at many potential partners. CNA, with its experience and long history of end-to-end coverage and manufacturing focus, was the clear choice to deliver the best program."
