Bay Shore, N.Y.—September 4, 2012—— Brownyard Group (www.brownyard.com), a program administrator providing specialized insurance coverage for select industry groups, announced today it has expanded its pest control program with PCOnova, a new insurance option designed specifically for small pest control companies.
PCOnova is written on an E&S basis through an insurance carrier rated “A+” (Superior) by A.M. Best Company.
“For years we have offered one of the pest management industry’s broadest commercial insurance programs, but we recognize this coverage can be difficult to afford for some small firms,” said John Culotta, Program Manager for the pest control program at Brownyard Group. “We developed PCOnova for these small firms as a lower cost, yet quality alternative to our admitted pest control program.”
