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.
