Armstrong International Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Established in 1900 as a family-owned company, Armstrong International Inc. has now expanded to over 3000 workers around the world. Over the years, they became renowned for their energy products, such as steam and condensate products, hot water solutions, heat transfer systems, refrigeration equipment, flow measurement solutions, and humidification equipment. For years, Armstrong International used asbestos in manufacturing their products, thus putting their workers at risk of developing lung diseases.

Asbestos Screening

Armstrong International employees exposed to asbestos

Asbestos is a known carcinogen that can cause diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma, and various other serious respiratory issues. Even though the risk it has on human health has been known ever since 1920, companies have still chosen to use it in their products. Armstrong International is no exception, manufacturing steam traps that contained asbestos, such as valves and gaskets. Their products were used in various industries, from chemical companies and mining corporations to food processing plants, ships, and shipyards.

If you are a former Armstrong International employee, you need to keep your health in check. As asbestos-related diseases can take many years to develop and start showing signs, taking regular X-rays is a wise precaution. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred at Armstrong International are factory workers, pipefitters, and maintenance workers. However, veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos products manufactured by Armstrong International, particularly those who served in the U.S. Navy as the majority of ships were constructed using asbestos products. In addition to gaskets, these were the most common asbestos products manufactured by Armstrong International during the last century.

Secondary asbestos exposure makes family members of former employees eligible for compensation too

When it comes to asbestos exposure, there is no safe way around it. Anyone working in an asbestos-contaminated environment is at risk. Manufacturing and handling products that contain it, can release small fibers into the air thus putting the workers at risk of inhaling it and over time, developing serious lung disease. Family members of Armstrong International may have also been exposed to asbestos as it was common for workers to bring asbests fibers home on their clothes.
