HDI protects automobile suppliers against the consequences of recall campaigns

HDI Global SE (HDI) has developed a new insurance solution for vehicle suppliers. The industrial insurer from the Talanx Group is using this policy to protect suppliers if an automobile manufactur-er claims against them for the costs of an automobile recall – irrespective of whether or not this is a measure that has been required by government authorities. If, for example, an automobile manufacturer has to remove defective supplier parts in the course of a recall campaign by service centres and install parts with no defects, costs can rise to tens or even hundreds of millions of euros.
