Skinner Engine Company

Skinner Engine Company was a well-known manufacturer of steam engines and component parts for ships, many of which contained high levels of asbestos. During a well-publicized period, Skinner (which had been acquired by ACE in 1998) applied for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, failed to provide a sustainable reorganization plan, was accused of collusion and was finally forced to revert to chapter 7 bankruptcy.
