Swan Asbestos and Silica
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Swan Asbestos and Silica was a parent company to Tyler Pipe, a pipe and foundry manufacturer operating out of Tyler, Texas. Its products made heavy use of the harmful mineral asbestos, despite research showing dramatic health effects on humans. When thousands of litigations threatened its business, Swan created an asbestos trust fund in 2001, and has been struggling to pay litigation damages since.
