Crown Cork & Seal Company, Inc.

When William Painter invented the famous "crown cork" in 1892, Crown, Cork & Seal Company was founded. By 1906, the company was expanding outside the country, in South America, Asia and Europe. In 1936, Crown acquired the Acme Can Company entering in the can-making industry and, later, in 1996, the company branched into plastics by purchasing the leading European manufacturer of plastic and metal packaging – CernaudMetalbox. Crown Cork & Seal didn’t use asbestos directly in the manufacturing process of their products but another company that was acquired by Crown with the name of Mundet Cork Company was a producer and distributor of asbestos containing insulation materials.

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 Crown Cork & Seal, 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.
