Riley Stoker Corporation
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
The Riley Stoker Corporation has been established in 1980 and runs today under the name of Riley Power. They are a manufacturer of industrial boilers and other related parts and components. As boilers operate at very high temperatures, asbestos was an ideal material to incorporate in components, given its quality of withstanding high temperatures. By using it, they have put their workers as well as consumers at large at the risk of developing serious diseases.
