Gardner Denver Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Gardner Denver Inc. is an American manufacturer of industrial equipment and technologies that was established in 1859. They have expanded to over 30 factories worldwide, which operate in three divisions: industrial, energy and medical. Like many other manufacturers, Gardner Denver has used asbestos in their products up until the 80s, when the government regulated it. Because asbestos is an extremely dangerous carcinogen, employees that have been exposed to it may now run the risk of developing serious illnesses.

Asbestos Screening

Gardner Denver employees exposed to asbestos

During the last century, Gardner Denver made use of asbestos in large amounts, as the mineral has numerous convenient properties, such as excellent resistance to fire, electricity and a wide range of chemicals. Furthermore, it was also very cheap at the time. It is worthy of note that veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos by using the products of this company while they were serving in the military. As an industrial equipment manufacturer, Gardner Denver has produced a variety of products such as compressors, vacuums & blowers, liquid ring pumps, petroleum pumps, and couplers. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of exposure to the asbestos products of this company are:

Considering the fact that many of their products were made to withstand high temperatures and needed to be durable and fireproof, asbestos was used as an important component in their manufacturing process. Individuals involved in the manufacturing process or further working with asbestos products, now run the risk of developing serious diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. As these diseases take a long time to start manifesting, it is highly recommended that you constantly check your health state, if you have been exposed to a contaminated environment. In an effort to raise awareness and help catch any signs early on, we offer free screenings to former employees of Gardner Denver.

Victims of secondary asbestos exposure need to take action in order to get compensated


Ever since 1920, asbestos was discovered to be a very dangerous carcinogen. Despite that, manufacturers continued to use it in their products and failed to warn their employees of the risk they were being exposed to. As it was mostly used for its qualities of resisting heat, strengthening materials, and fireproofing, workers might still be at risk today when working with old pipes, wires, or industrial equipment. Considering that the norms of hygiene and proper protection weren‘t very well implemented during that period, workers would often bring home microscopic fibers on their clothes, thus exposing their family members too.
