People Who Held Down a Job at Bartells Asbestos Are Now at Major Risk for Lung Disease
Headquartered in Renton, Washington, the company was a manufacturer of refractory and industrial products whose goal was to offer “the most complete line of insulation/refractory products and services available on the market” between 1923 and 2004. In 2001, Bartells Asbestos was purchased by a private company and, under the name of E.J. Bartells, it now commercializes refractory insulation, air handling, HVAC units, as well as mechanical insulation in compliance with the current asbestos regulations. Besides the employees involved in the production of these materials during the last century, the following occupational groups might have also been exposed to asbestos by Bartells Asbestos: electricians, construction workers, plumbers, pipe workers, insulators. The company was another business which could no longer afford to pay out compensation to harmed workers, so it followed the example of other asbestos manufacturers and sought bankruptcy protection in 2000. Their asbestos trust fund was set up one year later.
If you are a victim of occupational asbestos exposure as a result of working at Bartells Asbestos, you should file a claim with their asbestos trust fund as soon as possible. At the moment, it has $20 million set aside for people whose health was affected by workplace exposure.
