Advance Auto Parts Inc.
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Advance Auto Parts was founded in 1932, when Arthur Taubman purchased two stores: one in Roanoke, Virginia and one in Lynchburg, Virginia. An automotive aftermarket parts provider with over 4000 stores around the US, it was declared one of the biggest public companies in the world, by Forbes Magazine. Amongst the products sold over the years, there are asbestos brakes and clutch pads that might have put their workers at health risk.
