Burns and Roe (POWERS Engineers)

The company was established in 1932 and now operates as POWERS Engineers. It started out by building power plants, missile installations and various defense systems, and developed to a wide range of products. While Burns and Roe never manufactured asbestos commodities itself, it did operate with various products containing asbestos, and accordingly was sued repeatedly for personal injury, leading to the establishment of their asbestos trust fund in 2009.

Although the majority of people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases have been exposed in the workplace, secondary exposure is common as well. If you are diagnosed with a malignant or non-malignant disease and have a family member who worked at Burns and Roe, there is a high chance your illness is the result of secondary asbestos exposure. Because most companies did not require employees to wear protective equipment on the job, you could have easily inhaled fibers of asbestos which remained on your loved one’s clothes.
