Bell & Gossett Company
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Bell & Gossett is a manufacturer of pumps, valves, heat exchangers and accessories for plumbing. It started as a family-owned business, over 100 years ago but it quickly became one of the largest plumbing manufacturers in the US. As the company grew, they started to concentrate more and more on engineering, developing and producing components in order to improve heating systems. During WW2 and up until the 80s, the use of asbestos in plumbing products all over the US rose, and the Bell & Gossett Company is no stranger to it. Workers might have been exposed to asbestos, which put them at serious health risk.
