Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Foseco Inc. is a metal casting manufacturing company, founded in 1932 in Birmingham, England. Although the company started in Europe, it quickly expanded into the US, and is now part of Vesuvius, with plants functioning all over the world. Its major product lines are iron and steel, foundry, industrial processes, and fused silica. From the 60s to the late 70s, they have used asbestos in their products, thus risking not only the health of their factory workers but also of those further coming in contact with their products.
