MECON Insurance Pty Ltd is a specialist underwriting agency dedicated to the construction and mobile plant industries.
Mecon Insurance partners with insurance brokers to deliver tailored solutions for a wide range of clients and industries. With our experience, technical knowledge and commitment to service, you have a trusted business partner who responds quickly and efficiently – helping you get more clients properly insured.

MECON Insurance is not your typical underwriting agency. The people managing MECON Insurance make most of the underwriting decisions. We have designed our own policy wordings and administration systems to suit our products. Furthermore, MECON has its own in-house claims professionals with very high settling authorities.

Our policy wordings have been designed to cater for simple domestic work through to complex heavy industrial and civil projects and/or the various trades involved in such projects. Policies can be based upon:

  •  Annual Turnover; or
  • Run-off; or
  • Individual Declaration (Pay as you go).

For further information see Products.

We consider and treat brokers as business partners. They sit very firmly at the heart of our business – and their success is very much seen as our success. We have an unswerving commitment to ensure turnaround times are expedient and all documentation is accurate – in the belief that it is better to do it once and do it right.

A prime value proposition is the knowledge and experience we bring to our broker partners to ensure the best insurance “fit” for their/our clients. MECON’s in-house professionals will help you throughout the claims process, ensuring that you are well informed on the status of your claim along the way.
