Aurora Pump Company

Workers exposed to asbestos

Aurora Pump is a supplier of pumps and pump systems used in a variety of markets. Founded in 1919, they have specialized in manufacturing fire suppression pumps, HVAC & water supply pumps, and municipal pumps. Like many other manufacturers in the period between the 1940s and 1980s, they have used asbestos in their products, exposing their workers to serious health risks.

Asbestos Screening

Aurora Pump employees exposed to asbestos

During the last century, Aurora Pump made use of asbestos in large amounts, as the mineral has numerous convenient properties, such as excellent resistance to fire, electricity and a wide range of chemicals. Furthermore, it was also very cheap at the time. Up until the 1980s, many manufacturers chose to use asbestos in their products because it added durability; it was heat resistant and fireproof. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of exposure to the asbestos products of this company are:

The manufacturing process exposed their workers to serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. But it wasn’t just that. A lot of the equipment had asbestos insulation as well, thus exposing even workers who did maintenance. Aurora Pump is one of the companies that have used asbestos in manufacturing their products, putting their workers at risk. If you are a former Aurora Pump employee, you need to pay close attention to your health. Asbestos-related diseases take a long time to develop and start showing signs, so it’s extremely important to do regular check-ups.

Victims of secondary asbestos exposure need to take action in order to get compensated


Although asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, processing it and further working with products containing it causes the release of microscopic fibers into the air that can remain trapped in the lungs and over time, lead to serious diseases. Despite the fact that it was discovered ever since 1920 to be extremely toxic on human health, manufacturers still chose to use it, failing to warn their workers of its effects. Aurora Pump is one of the companies that have been involved in asbestos lawsuits over the last few years.

Secondary asbestos exposure victims are entitled to compensation as well. Many family members could have also been exposed to microscopic fibers since it often happened that workers would contaminate their homes through their clothes. If you have developed a disease as a consequence of secondary exposure, contact us as soon as possible.
