Factory Mutual Research Restructures
Factory Mutual Research, Norwood, Mass., a scientific research and product testing organization and an affiliate of property insurer FM Global, is operating under new names following a corporate reorganization and the alignment of its research division with FM Global’s risk management operations for the benefit of insured policy holders. The research division is now known as FM Global Research and the Approvals division has been renamed FM Approvals.
According to Tom Lawson, FM Global’s senior vice president of research and approvals, the names may have changed but it’s still “business a usual” for research and approvals. “Both FM Global Research and FM Approvals will continue to do cutting-edge work that is business-relevant and which sets loss prevention standards and practices worldwide.”
