Georgia Pacific Corporation

What is now known as one of the largest manufacturers of building products in the world, Georgia Pacific got its start in 1927, as a hardwood wholesaler. The company went on to expand by operating sawmills and lumber mills and after 1956 it added papermaking to its activities. For the rest of the 20th century, Georgia Pacific continued to grow even more and it was bought by Koch Industries in 2005. Along the years, Georgia Pacific acquired different companies and one of them was Bestwall Gypsum. This company used asbestos in manufacturing some of its products before being purchased by Georgia Pacific, but still, continued to use this toxic mineral years after being bought.

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.
