Sherwin Williams Company
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Sherwin Williams is a manufacturer of paints, coatings and related products, founded in 1866. Over the years they have established themselves as one of the biggest manufacturing and supplying paint companies in the US, operating through four segments: The Americas Group, Consumer Brands Group, Latin America Coatings Group, and Performance Coatings Group. Like many other companies between the 40s and the 80s, Sherwin Williams also chose to incorporate asbestos in their products, putting not only their employees but also their customers, at serious health risks.
