The partnership will look to enhance Trinity Underwriting’s automotive liability product offerings, including solutions for towing, automotive repossession, sand and gravel, paratransit and intermodal trucking businesses.
“The automotive industry has faced volatility and a myriad of complex challenges, leaving a growing need for liability solutions,” said Stephen Standing, executive vice president of TUMI.
“We look forward to working with Obsidian to enhance our automotive programs and fill a niche gap in the marketplace, while providing the ideal support for our retailers.”
