American Biltrite Inc.
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
American Biltrite Inc. has been manufacturing and distributing floor tiles, sheet flooring and rubber products for over a century now. From 1961 until 1985 they have produced floor tiles containing asbestos and sheet vinyl flooring, on and off from 1962 until 1980. Though it was known ever since the 1920s that asbestos fibers are a health risk, manufacturers continued to use it, thus putting their workers at risk.
