Our Specialists Provide Free Asbestos Screenings to Former Nicolet Keasbey & Mattison Workers
Initially a pharmaceutical company, Nicolet Keasbey & Mattison shifted the focus of their business when Dr. Richard Mattison discovered that combining the laxative known as milk of magnesia with asbestos resulted in a suitable material for pipe insulation. From then on, the company began manufacturing a wide range of asbestos products, including paper, roof coating, yarn, as well as automotive components. Soon, Nicolet Keasbey & Mattison became one of the leading producers of asbestos textiles in the U.S. Besides the people directly involved in the manufacturing process, the following groups of workers might have also handled Nicolet Keasbey & Mattison’s hazardous products: carpenters, plumbers, construction workers, insulators, electricians, interior decorators, roofers. As of 1987, the company was sued by over 50,000 asbestos victims. No longer able to compensate injured workers, they filed for bankruptcy protection and in 2006, their asbestos trust fund emerged, which now has approximately $2.11 million.
