Foster Wheeler Corporation

Foster Wheeler was formed after the merger between Power Specialty and Wheeler Condenser & Engineering Company in 1927. The company was involved in oil refinery design and construction, engineering, petrochemicals and the production of generators and boilers. The relationship established between the two former companies and the U.S. military continued with Foster Wheeler supplying boilers and steam-condensers. By the 1990’s, the company expanded in Europe and Asia. The products manufactured by the Foster Wheeler Corporation before the 1970’s contained asbestos as this mineral was used for its fireproofing characteristics, low costs and versatility. These contaminated products affected the health of the people working in refineries, plants and on ships.
