In 1955, Thomas George and Russell Walsh founded Buffalo Acoustical, which applied acoustical materials onto buildings in Western New York. In 1968, Buffalo Acoustical merged with a building contractor called the Mader Corporation. Currently, the Mader Construction Company, Inc. is located in Elma, New York.
Buffalo Acoustical was known for applying acoustical ceiling tiles and sprayed-on acoustical materials in commercial and residential buildings. These tiles were applied to the Pohlman Foundry, Kleinhans Music Hall, the HSBC Tower, Donovan Building, and Thruway Lanes, amongst others.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at Buffalo Acoustical are now being diagnosed with mesothelioma. These workers regularly applied asbestos-laden acoustical materials to ceilings and walls to reduce noise and provide fireproofing. These acoustical materials consisted of a dry powder that was mixed with water. The application and cutting down of acoustical materials often resulted in large amounts of asbestos dust being emitted into the air.
Many laborers who worked at Buffalo Acoustical are being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer.
