Your business creates a part that goes into a heater. The heater burns a house down and the manufacturer of the heater gets sued. Subsequently every person that made a part for the heater is also named in the lawsuit. This includes you no matter how small or mundane of a part.
You produce a part which is only made using a custom machine in your shop. A water leak in the ceiling damages the circuit board of this custom machine and you have a large order you need to fulfill. It’s going to be a month until you can find a comparable machine to purchase. You not only may lose the revenue from the sale but also the future business of this buyer.
You manufacturer a power supply that is used in the electronic industry and it’s found to be subject to overheating due to a design flaw in the assembly process. You have to recall 25,000 of the units you sold over the past year to fix the problem.
