Milwaukee Valve Company
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Milwaukee Valve was established in 1901. They manufacture valves for a variety of industries such as heating, plumbing, marine, and the dry bulk hauling industries. As the 40s brought an exponential growth of asbestos usage in industrial manufacturing, many companies have incorporated it into their products up until 1980 when it was regulated. Milwaukee Valve is no exception. Their use of asbestos has exposed not only their employees but even those further working with their products to serious health risks.
