Burnham Corporation

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Burnham Corporation was founded in 1905, in Lancaster, PA and is the parent company of numerous boiler and related HVAC products and accessories manufacturers. Until the 1980s many manufacturers have been using it as a component in their products, and Burnham Corporation is one of them. Burnham Commercial for example, which is one of their subsidiaries has been involved in numerous lawsuits over their use of asbestos in their products. Exposing their workers to an asbestos-contaminated work environment may have put them at risk of developing serious lung diseases.

Former Burnham Corporation Employees Are at Risk of Developing Asbestos-Related Lung Diseases

Asbestos fibers were added in products to make them more durable and resistant to heat and fire. Although it was a known carcinogen ever since 1920, companies continued to use it, thus putting their workers at risk of developing related lung diseases. Burnham’s boilers contained asbestos up until the 1980s, when the use of it was regulated in the US. Anyone who manufactured these products or has worked with them, is at risk of developing a serious illness, because of the fact that asbestos fibers can contaminate the air when disturbed. When inhaled they get trapped inside the lungs, running a huge risk of developing diseases like mesothelioma over time.

These diseases can start showing signs many years after the exposure has ended. Because of this, regular health check-ups are strongly advised. If you are a former Burnham Corporation employee, you can benefit from our team’s expertise. We offer screenings free of charge, based on your latest chest X-rays, in order to determine if you have cause for concern or not. You can contact us for more information regarding this matter.

Victims of Asbestos Exposure During Their Time at Burnham Corporation Are Entitled to Receive Compensation


As boilers and related products contained asbestos, they represent a danger not only to factory workers but also to anyone who has worked in their vicinity. Boilers usually had asbestos insulation around their walls, in tube banks, internal pipes and gaskets and they sometimes even contained raw fibers. These materials still remain in old installations and could be endangering even people working with them today. There are a number of jobs that exposed individuals to asbestos-related diseases, such as boiler workers, technicians, repairmen, steamfitters, pipefitters, industrial workers and maintenance workers. Many victims have filed lawsuits against Burnham Corporation in the last years as a result of their faulty work environment.
