Turner & Newall

The company was founded in England in 1871 as a manufacturer of asbestos products and mine operator, where it was known under the name Turner Brothers. In the U.K., it was the first company that used asbestos fibers in the making of cloth. Due to this achievement, the company’s name changed into Turner Brothers Asbestos Company. The merger with Washington Chemical Company in 1920 led to the most recongnised name change for this company –Turner & Newall. The company went through a rapid growth during the 1930’s and the 1940’s, purchasing several asbestos insulation companies, in 1939, beginning to operate an asbestos mine in South Africa. The company’s products endangered the lives of the people working in the construction and electrical industries.
