Eagle-Picher Industries

The company started in 1942 but became what we know today as Eagle-Picher in 1916 when the merger between Eagle White Lead Works and Picher Lead Company took place. It was initially a corporation that manufactured products based on zinc. In time, Eagle-Picher acquired different companies that were using other minerals in their products. One of these minerals was asbestos, known at that time for its fireproofing characteristics. Until the mid-1970’s, this poisonous mineral was used in manufacturing some of their products.

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 Eagle-Picher, 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.
