Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Weil-Mclain Co. was established in 1881, in Chicago. They are a manufacturer of hydronic comfort heating systems for residential, commercial and industrial use. With manufacturing facilities all throughout the US, they have become one of the leading boiler companies, constantly expanding. Because up until 1980, the use of asbestos in products that required resistance to high temperatures was very common, Weil-Mclain has chosen to incorporate it, exposing their employees to huge health risks.
