Allied Signal, Inc. / Bendix Corporation

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Allied came to life in 1920, after the merger between five companies involved in the chemical industry and by 1928, the company became one of the most important producers of ammonia worldwide. In 1962, Allied acquired different gas and oil properties by purchasing Union Texas Natural Gas. Another asset acquired by the company was an aerospace and automotive company by the name of Bendix Corporation in 1983. A merger valued at $15 billion happened years later between Allied Signal and Honeywell, a developer and supplier of advanced technology products. Some of Allied Signal’s subsidiaries used asbestos in manufacturing their products. Bendix made use of this toxic mineral when producing their automotive friction parts putting the lives of mechanics everywhere at risk.

If You Worked at Allied Signal, Inc. or Bendix Corporation While They Were Using Asbestos, Your Health May Now Be at Risk

As a manufacturer of automotive friction products, Allied Signal, Inc. was another company which employed asbestos for its remarkable durability throughout the last century. The occupational groups who were at risk of asbestos exposure via handling Allied Signal, Inc. products include oil refinery workers, mechanics, shipyard workers, power plant workers, as well as the very individuals who took part in the manufacturing process. Despite asbestos being formally classified as a human carcinogen by federal agencies such as EPA starting with 1971, the company did not cease using the mineral after it acquired Bendix Corporation – a renowned developer and manufacturer of brake pads – in 1983. It was only in 2003 that Bendix Corporation gave up asbestos use for good. Therefore, if you were employed at either of these companies, we advise you to keep a close eye on your health, as you were inevitably exposed to asbestos on the job.

Do You Have a Former Allied Signal, Inc. or Bendix Corporation Worker in Your Family? If You Do, You Might Also Be in Danger

Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when one is in contact with harmful fibers without being in close proximity to the source of contamination, was unfortunately very common during the last century, as companies were lacking industrial hygiene almost completely. Thus, in addition to the 11 million workers who were being exposed to asbestos on the job daily, numerous of their family members would inhale or ingest carcinogenic fibers on a regular basis as well. Roughly 152,000 claims have been filed against Bendix Corporation between 1981 and 2009 via Honeywell, which had acquired the company in the meantime, as the awful health consequences of asbestos exposure began emerging. According to official sources, their value is estimated to be approximately $566 million.

However, people who developed a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure are not the only individuals who can seek financial compensation.
