Supply Bonds guarantee performance of a contract by a supplier to furnish agreed upon supplies or materials. Project owners and/or local authorities require this type of contract bond to be obtained by principals in order to protect public construction projects. In the event of a default by the supplier, the surety indemnifies the purchaser of the supplies against the resulting loss of time and value. It is important to note that not all public works projects require a supply bond. You’ll want to check with your specific obligee to determine your bonding requirements.
Current Bond Markets
As is the trend amongst the various constructions bonds being offered today, bonding companies are taking very conservative approaches to underwriting these surety bonds. In most instances, smaller, less experienced companies typically have a harder time being placed for a supply bond than do the larger, more established firms. However, there are some bonding companies and agencies willing to work with and offer great deals to up-and-coming companies, looking to gain experience in this industry.
Lance Surety Bonds currently has programs designed to help companies, large and small, obtain the supply bonds they’re in need of, which are are very similar to the programs we offer for other types of contract bonds.
