Lincoln Electric Company

This producer of welding equipment was founded in 1895 by John Lincoln. By World War II, Lincoln Electric was already the largest manufacturer of arc-welding equipment worldwide. During the 1950’s and the 1960’s, the company started to expand internationally opening a division in France. From the 1990’s on, Lincoln Electric started to grow by acquiring different companies and expanding its operations in more than 20 countries. The fireproof qualities of Lincoln Electric’s products were given by a naturally occurring mineral known as asbestos. This went on until the year 1981 when the company decided to move on from using it as it endangered the lives of the people using their welding products.

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.
