NASGW and Hummel Group Launch Fortify Insurance

The National Sporting Goods Wholesale Association (NASGW), the association representing shooting sports wholesalers, manufacturers and business partners, and the Hummel Group announced earlier this month the creation of insurance and risk management solutions designed for the shooting sports industry, called Fortify. Sure.

“We are very excited to offer insurance solutions to our industry at a time when many insurance providers are turning their backs on us,” said Kenyon Gleason, president of NASGW. “Our partners at the Hummel Group have years of experience working with our industry and others experiencing similar external pressures. They understand our unique challenges and are committed to being a great fit for businesses struggling to find insurance providers.”

Fortify Insurance was initially announced last month at the NASGW Expo in Kansas City and generated quite a bit of interest on the show floor. Fortify offers various insurance solutions, including commercial property, liability, employee benefits, and risk management strategies.

“Fortify Insurance was created to champion the shooting sports industry in the risk management space, and we are grateful to partner with NASGW in this effort,” said Tom Brenner, Hummel Group Business Risk Advisor. “The only thing that is constant is change, and we recognize that. So we are proactively educating insurance companies to see this industry differently. We are positioning members of this industry to take back control and receive the financial benefits of their good loss history. We have a plan and we are excited to execute it.”

Fortify Insurance is available to all businesses in the shooting sports industry, regardless of their affiliation with NASGW. This includes manufacturers, distributors, dealers, retailers, FFLs, and ranges. Companies interested in learning about Fortify’s insurance solutions can visit
