Former Foseco Inc. Employees Need to Pay Close Attention to Their Health
Foseco’s primary business is manufacturing products for the foundry industry. These products are used in foundry melting shops, core shops, and the molding line and pouring stages. Although their initial production was small, by the time they started expanding in the 60s, asbestos was added in their products for its insulating ability and its heat and fire resistance. Their products needed to be able to withstand high temperatures when metal was melted within the automotive, construction or casting industry. By 1968, they were using two different kinds of asbestos in their hot top (asbestos boards and compounds) products to help with their durability. When manufacturing coating materials, asbestos was poured into stirring machines that mixed it with other ingredients like water, silica flour, and resin.
Like many other manufacturers, Foseco has failed to warn and properly protect their employees from asbestos exposure, thus putting them at risk of developing serious diseases. If you are a former Foseco employee, you need to pay close attention to your health, as asbestos-related diseases may take a long time to show signs, even after the exposure has ended. In an effort to help those who have been exposed, we offer free screenings. Our medical team will examine your latest chest X-ray and determine if there are any abnormalities you need to worry about.
