Former Bestwall Gypsum Company Workers Should Keep a Close Eye on Their Health
Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the company has been a producer of building materials since 1961. It is still in business today, operating under Georgia-Pacific. While specializing in the manufacturing of gypsum wallboard, Bestwall Gypsum Company also produced a series of various other construction materials, including joint compound, patching plaster, drywall adhesive, and spackling. However, their main product would contain the highest concentration of asbestos fibers. It was not until 1977 that the company renounced the use of asbestos, when stricter regulations came into effect by virtue of federal agencies such as EPA and OSHA. In spite of being faced with over 60,000 lawsuits, Bestwall Gypsum Company was able to pay out compensation to injured workers and was not needed to file for bankruptcy protection. Therefore, the company has not set up a trust fund.
