Pacor Incorporated

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

The company was formed in Philadelphia in the year 1921 as an industrial contractor and supplier of insulation materials. The Philadelphia Asbestos Corporation collaborated with a wide range of industries, the company preferring to address directly businesses and not the consumer market. Nowadays, the company has factories in New Jersey, Georgia and North Carolina. At that time, their most sought after products were the insulation materials containing asbestos fibers. One of Pacor’s leading business partners was Johns Manville, another company that heavily used asbestos for its roofing products.

Pacor Incorporated employees exposed to asbestos

Catering primarily to other companies, Pacor Incorporated was a supplier of asbestos products such as fire cloth and insulation during the last century. While they are still in business today, their products are now asbestos-free and completely safe for human health. Regrettably, numerous workers who took part in the manufacturing of asbestos products before the 1980s are currently struggling with lung disease as a result of heavy exposure. Unable to pay out financial compensation to each former employee who came to be diagnosed with a terrible disease, Pacor Incorporated filed for bankruptcy protection in 1986. Nowadays, people who were injured by the asbestos exposure they were subjected to while working for the company can easily recover the compensation they deserve with the help of a lawyer from the asbestos trust fund set up by Pacor Incorporated.

The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred at Pacor Incorporated are factory workers. However, veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos products manufactured by Pacor Incorporated, particularly those who served in the U.S. Navy as the majority of ships were constructed using asbestos products. In addition to fire curtains, these were the most common asbestos products manufactured by Pacor Incorporated during the last century.

We also provide legal assistance to the families of Pacor Incorporated workers


Undeniably, most asbestos exposure took place in occupational settings throughout the better part of the last century. From shipyards to chemical plants, asbestos would be present in enormous amounts and the workers who were in charge of handling it rarely wore adequate equipment. Nevertheless, the workplace was not the only environment in which asbestos exposure would happen. Since industrial hygiene was almost non-existent, as asbestos was deemed safe by companies, workers would unwittingly bring home carcinogenic fibers on their clothes. Thereby, the health of family members was also at risk.

Secondary exposure, which resulted in approximately 10% of the asbestos victims in the U.S. today, occurs when one inhales or ingests toxic fibers from indirect sources. If you ever inhabited the same house as a Pacor Incorporated worker and currently struggle with a diagnosis such as lung cancer, COPD, or pulmonary fibrosis, please seek legal assistance immediately. You might have a case of secondary asbestos exposure and therefore be entitled to financial compensation. With nearly 30 years of professional experience, the specialized attorneys at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. will help you recover the money you deserve from the company’s asbestos trust fund.
