About Unifrax

Unifrax is a global leader in high-performance specialty products used by many industries, including autos and aircraft. Unifrax is committed to producing high quality products that help its customers save energy, reduce pollution, and improve fire safety.

Going Global

Until recently, it had been predominantly a North American company. But it now has global operations. Unifrax turned to Lockton to globalize its approach to risk management. Lockton challenged the company to re-think its approach, says John Dandolph, Chief Executive Officer of Unifrax.

“Lockton came in and really took the opportunity to teach us about what was available in the market and how to think about risks,” Dandolph said. 

A Partner, Not Just a Broker

The Unifrax team credits Lockton with acting like a partner in the business than simply as an insurance broker procuring coverage. Lockton teams around the world conducted risk assessments at company facilities to improve safety for employees and keep operations running smoothly. Dandolph says Lockton teams keep asking great questions like, “How do we get better, how do we get to world class?” 

Confidence

Dandolph knows that the risk landscape continues to change around the world, and appreciates the support he gets from the Lockton team on the full range of insurance issues: property, casualty, umbrella, general liability, commercial auto liability, directors and officers liability, aviation, and fiduciary liability.

“They help add a level of confidence as we expand around the world that we can do so focused on the right objectives, without worrying about risk and insurance needs.” 

Lockton came in and really took the opportunity to teach us…how to think about risks.”
