United States Gypsum Company

USG Company was formed in 1901 as a merger of 30 different independent gypsum companies that operated across the entire country. Around the 1930’s, the Great Depression made the US Gypsum Company expand its product line to finishing products and insulation materials like panels and boards. Between the years 1920 and 1978 some of the products manufactured by USG contained asbestos. These products were mostly used in the roofing business, construction and pipefitting industries.

If You Worked for USG Get Screened for Asbestos

Asbestos has been extensively employed by an astounding number of companies throughout the U.S. before the mid 1980s, due to either negligence or willful ignorance. Nowadays, the hazardous effects of prolonged exposure are well-known and undeniable. If you or a family member has worked for one of these companies, it is highly recommended to get screened for asbestos, as exposure is very likely to have occurred.

Although the majority of people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases have been exposed in the workplace, secondary exposure is common as well. If you are diagnosed with a malignant or non-malignant disease and have a family member who worked at USG, there is a high chance your illness is the result of secondary asbestos exposure. Because most companies did not require employees to wear protective equipment on the job, you could have easily inhaled fibers of asbestos which remained on your loved one’s clothes.
