Over the years, the consultancy has also steadily widened its range of activities and today has many contacts to a broad range of industries, in recent years especially to those in renewable energies (wind/biogas/CHP). An eight-person team and several freelancers handle property, liability and machine breakdown claims in Germany and abroad. In addition, the team around Dipl.-Ing. Stengert regularly organizes and stewards claims management, e.g. extensive fire damage, determines the causes of technical damage, and draws up assessments for fire insurance and fiscal purposes. They are regularly called to work for courts, especially in the area in which MD Stengert is publicly appointed and sworn in, i.e. the glass, ceramics, lime, cement, hard rock and concrete block industries.
Especially in the clay brick and tile industry, Manuel Stengert is called in as an expert directly by companies in the event of technical problems, damage claims or determining the cause of damage (setting collapse, extensive fire damage, determination of faults in new installations) and provides advice. The expert is also regularly a speaker e.g. at the German expert consultants conference or at external education/training institutes as he can report preventatively to other colleagues and those interested from the field and sometimes explain very critical technical and insurance-related detailed problems.

In three papers based on three examples of tricky claims cases (liability, property damage and machine breakdown), an insight was provided into the comprehensive range of work in plants and machinery and problems in claims handling as opposed to the insurance contract aspects were presented and discussed together with the guests.
Invited to the event were all groups of business partners so that insurers, insurance brokers, company managers, lawyers, representatives of clean-up companies and expert consultant colleagues were able to engage in interesting discussions. A repeat of this successful event in the next few years has not been ruled out.
