Viking Pump Inc.
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Viking Pump Inc. is a manufacturer of displacement pumps and flow-control systems for fluid-handling applications. It was established in 1911, in Cedar Falls, Iowa. During WW2, the company won government contracts and started to grow their production, manufacturing pumps that were used in a variety of military applications, including tanks and ships. As it was common up until 1980, they have used asbestos in their products, exposing employees to huge health risks.
