Mutual Assistance Program

Printers do not often experience a disaster which interrupts their business operations, but occasionally it happens. You can buy insurance to cover the cost of the damage and to recover the cost of additional business expenses, but members still have to serve their customers. If you don’t meet your customers’ needs quickly, everything else becomes irrelevant. PINE offers a Mutual Assistance Program to help you when disaster hits.

If you would like to take part in this member exclusive program, please click here to submit your enrollment form.

In conjunction with the Mutual Assistance Program, we have developed a Disaster Recovery Guide to assist members in developing a Disaster Recovery Plan. To download your copy of the Disaster Recovery Guide, click here.
