Hollingsworth & Vose Company

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Hollingsworth & Vose Company is a manufacturer of engineered paper used in filtration, energy and industrial applications. It was founded in 1843, in East Walpole, Massachusetts. Between 1952 and 1956, they have also manufactured cigarette filters for Lorillard Tobacco, which contained a special type of asbestos. Apart from exposing consumers to huge health risks through this association, they may have also exposed their workers in the process of manufacturing their products.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos Need to Keep a Close Eye on Their Health

It’s frightening to think that almost 70 years ago, manufacturers had even come to use asbestos as a component in cigarette filters, exposing not only their workers but also consumers at huge health risks. Hollingsworth & Vose Company has manufactured these type of cigarette filters for Lorillard Tobacco, for their original Kent cigarettes. Apart from these filters, like many other manufacturers at that time, their equipment may have also been containing asbestos, thus exposing a larger number of workers.

If you are a former Hollingsworth & Vose employee, you need to keep a close eye on your health. Asbestos-related diseases can take a long time to develop, even after the exposure has stopped. In order to promote early diagnosis, we offer medical screening free of charge. You can contact us for any further information regarding this matter.
