American Cast Iron Pipe Co.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Also known as ACIPCO, the company made use of asbestos to manufacture pipes, which led to heavy exposure among workers. Employees were not provided with the protective equipment they needed, so after they made the molds to pour melted iron to manufacture asbestos pipes, they would have to grind off rough areas of the finished products to get the asbestos pipes ready for sale. Thereby, asbestos fibers would be released in the air, which employees of American Cast Iron Pipe Co. would subsequently inhale and ingest. Their occupational asbestos exposure now places them at high risk of developing a serious disease such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. The company was located in Birmingham, Alabama, and is still in business today, which means that former workers injured by asbestos exposure will have to file a claim with American Cast Iron Co. to recover the compensation they deserve.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of American Cast Iron Pipe Co. workers


If you lived under the same roof as a worker of American Cast Iron Pipe Co. you were most likely secondarily exposed to asbestos as, when they would return home, employees would bring asbestos fibers in the house on their clothes, as well as on their skin and hair, since they had no protective equipment against asbestos exposure.
