Customer Characteristics

Man with Hard Hat

The BITCO general contracting customer is typically a medium- to large-sized operation which has been in business for several years, is well-managed and financially stable. Our core customers specialize in construction of new buildings with a particular emphasis on commercial construction.

We also look for a history of responding aggressively to controllable losses and the circumstances which give rise to them. We maintain that management involvement and disciplined risk control are critical to a contractor's successful risk management and insurance program. Our customers value our risk control expertise and depend on it.

We strive to develop excellent rapport, open lines of communication and constructive working relationships with our customers. Through periodic visits to our customers' worksites, we develop ongoing, up-to-date information on their operations and are able to be responsive to their changing needs. Our risk control, claims and underwriting personnel are all well attuned to the needs of general contractors and the complex contractual relationships that are inherent to their business operations.

For many contractors BITCO represents the best in efficient local underwriting delivery, high-impact customer service, responsive products and impeccable financial security.
