Our Medical Experts Offer Screenings Free of Charge to Keene Corporation Employees Who Were in Contact with Asbestos
Initially a manufacturer of heat sealed plastic packaging, Keene Corporation rapidly began producing a wide range of building materials after 1967, all of which containing asbestos. Unlike the majority of asbestos companies, the executive was unaware of the dire health consequences of asbestos exposure. From 1971 onwards, thousands of lawsuits kept piling up against Keene Corporation, which found itself unable to pay out compensation to each injured worker. After a change in the leadership of the company, Keene Corporation sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1993 and in 1996, a trust fund was created to provide money to individuals whose health was affected by occupational asbestos exposure. To this day, the asbestos trust fund continues paying out financial compensation to anyone harmed by the products of Keene Corporation.
