MECON Insurance

Award winning service

MECON Insurance is pleased to be recognised by two independent industry awards – we don’t self-nominate for these which makes it even more meaningful.

The first is the LMI ClaimsComparison, where MECON Insurance is the only insurer in Australia to achieved a 5 star claims service rating for construction and 4.5 stars for contractors plant. LMI ClaimsComparison rates the claims service of major Australian insurers based on speed, proactiveness, accuracy and fairness. The star rating has been calculated following a regular survey.

We were also named as a finalist for the 2019 Mansfield Awards in the specialist category. The winner was TravelCard, and our fellow nominees were Global Transport Insurance, National Transport Insurance and Shannons Insurance.

The Mansfield Awards are part of an annual industry awards event to recognise claims excellence in the Australian insurance industry. The awards are named in honour of the British Lord Chief Justice who introduced the industry to the principle of uberrima fides (utmost good faith) some 250 years ago. The Mansfield Awards emphasises the vital role that claims professionals play in the insurance industry and recognises those achieving excellence in this field.

These awards are a not-for-profit event. Any and all funds raised via sponsorship of The Mansfield Awards will be used exclusively to cover costs, with any remaining funds to be donated to the Amal Mulia Orphanage in Sumatra, Indonesia. These funds will help rebuild and provide care for children orphaned by the earthquake and resultant tsunami in 2007.

FIVE SIX! in a row for MECON.

MECON received the brokers’ choice vote for best Construction Agency and best Annual Construction Policy wording in the Insurance Business Australia survey.  This result means brokers have unanimously nominated MECON as best Construction Agency and best Annual Construction Policy wording for a sixth consecutive year.

Glenn Ross, CEO At MECON was delighted with the winning streak, but was quick to acknowledge both his team and the broker network that MECON strives to support. “Brokers are, and always have been, our priority.  They remain the key focus for our business.  Receiving the brokers’ votes for our service and product again is tremendously flattering but at the same time I think it’s a reflection of the synergy we enjoy with our brokers.”
