Insurance for Manufacturers


Gilbert’s Risk Solutions is located right in the center of the historical rust belt, in the middle of Pittsburgh, PA, Cleveland, OH and Morgantown, WV, the heart of the nation’s steel industry. We’ve seen industries wax and wane over our 160 years, but manufacturing remains the backbone of the area – and of our service expertise.

Here in Western Pennsylvania, we are experiencing resurgence in manufacturing, with the anticipation of the growth that will be sparked by the multibillion-dollar ethane cracker plant that will be opening in Monaca. We expect an influx in plastics manufacturers and related businesses, and we’re ready to meet their needs.


Gilbert’s Risk Solutions has a core strength and expertise insuring the Pennsylvania manufacturing sector. We work with virtually every type of manufacturing firm, running the gamut from small tool and die shops to large, multi-state operations with complex needs. In fact, we excel in serving high-risk, complex, multi-plant manufacturing operations.


While we’re proud to call Pennsylvania our home, we’ve helped businesses all across the country manage their risk and we look forward to helping you, too – no matter where it is that you call home.

  • Steel manufacturing
