History of Sugarman Brothers Paper Company
Table of Contents
In 1906, a paper products company was formed by four brothers of the Sugarman family. Ownership of the company was divided four ways, but was operated by three of the brothers – Myer, Samuel, and Joseph. The company was organized as the Leonard Tissue Company in the 1930s, and merged with two other family entities to form the Statler Corporation in 1969. The company was headquartered in Medford, MA, but also held ownership over mills in other states.
Asbestos Use at Sugarman Brothers Paper Company in Medford, MA
There is considerable risk for asbestos exposure for those working in the paper manufacturing industry. The high levels of exposure to asbestos from the building materials at the factories at which paper is produced, the ingredients used in the paper-making process, and parts of the machinery being used to produce the paper containing asbestos, make paper mills and factories a potential hot spot for asbestos-related medical conditions, including mesothelioma.
There are a plethora of commercial buildings still standing today which were built well before 1980, when asbestos-laden building products had not yet begun to get phased out of use. These building products include cement, electrical wire, plumbing pipes, tile flooring, interior and exterior insulation, and insulation used in boilers and furnaces.
Since the paper-making process involves high levels of heat, the equipment and machinery required to create and maintain that heat had to be insulated. Before information about asbestos’ danger was well known, it was used as an effective and widely available insulator. Talc, an ingredient in paper-making during the refining and bleaching processes, could contain asbestos if they two happened to be naturally formed, mined, and processed together prior to use. Asbestos-laden felts, fabrics, and filters were used in equipment during the drying process, a critical step in high-volume paper production.
