A.P. Green Industries Asbestos Litigation & Lawsuits

A.P. Green Industries

A.P. Green Industries was founded as a brick manufacturing company in 1910 and expanded into producing a variety of refractory products for high-temperature environments.

Like many companies that made products to withstand high temperatures, A.P. Green turned to asbestos for its heat-resistant qualities.

A.P. Green’s products were used at job sites throughout New York and across the United States. Workers who built, repaired, maintained, or removed equipment with asbestos-containing materials risked exposure to the deadly carcinogen.

Unfortunately, for many years, A.P. Green and other large companies knew of the dangers of asbestos but failed to warn workers, putting their own profits before people.

Now, decades after asbestos exposure, individuals who worked with A.P. Green products are being diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, asbestosis and other devastating diseases. They are facing expensive medical bills and worrying about what the future holds for their families. At Belluck & Fox, our experienced and respected asbestos attorneys are here to help.

Individuals who have been diagnosed with an asbestos disease, as well as family members who have lost a loved one, may be entitled to compensation from the asbestos manufacturers that put them in harm’s way. Although A. P. Green filed for bankruptcy, it created the multi-million-dollar APG Asbestos Trust to pay current and future asbestos claims.

Green products and have been diagnosed with an asbestos disease such as mesothelioma, contact our knowledgeable attorneys today to discuss your legal rights.

History of A.P. Green Industries

united states gypsum asbestos trustAllen Percival Green started his company by buying Mexico Brick and Fire Clay for $85,000 in 1910. At the time, Green was 35 years old, and he saw big potential in the brick manufacturing business based in Mexico, Missouri.

With increasing demand for refractory products during World War I and World War II, Green expanded the business, growing both domestically and abroad.

A.P. Green was eventually acquired by U.S. Gypsum Corporation and later Global Industrial Technologies. The brand merged with Harbison-Walker Refractories Co. in 1998 before being purchased by ANH Refractories in 2000.

Under pressure from mounting asbestos litigation, A.P. Green filed for bankruptcy in 2002. As part of its bankruptcy proceedings, the company formed the APG Asbestos Trust to pay current and future claims. The trust began accepting claims in 2014.
