Western MacArthur

Western MacArthur was founded in 1967, when MacArthur and Western Asbestos merged into one  company specializing in wall and pipe insulation. Extensive use of asbestos in thse products, as was common at the time, made this one of the most litigated companies in asbestos case law, leading to bankruptcy in 2002, restructuring in 2004, and setting up a $2 billion asbestos trust fund.

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 Western MacArthur, 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.
