Kaiser Gypsum Company

The Kaiser Gypsum Company steamed from the mind of Henry J. Kaiser, an entrepreneur that entered the business field in 1923. From a sand and gravel plant, Kaiser ventured into shipbuilding and later into the housing industry. Due to the limited products like plaster and wallboards found on the market, in 1952, he founded the Kaiser Gypsum Company. After his retirement, the company was sold several times – in 1978 to Domtar and in 1996 to Georgia Pacific. The naturally occurring mineral known as asbestos was used by Kaiser in the company’s building supplies, even though Kaiser might have known the dangers of its toxicity as early as 1952.

Although the majority of people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases have been exposed in the workplace, secondary exposure is common as well. If you are diagnosed with a malignant or non-malignant disease and have a family member who worked at Kaiser Gypsum, there is a high chance your illness is the result of secondary asbestos exposure. 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.
