From 1865 to 1880, Jeremiah and Daniel Finch bought the Glens Mills Company mill with Samuel Pruyn. Shortly after, Finch, Pruyn Company acquired the Wing Mill. The company produced lumber, lime, black marble, and canal boats. From 1880 to 1900, Finch, Pruyn bought its first Adirondack tract, consisting of 13,000 acres. It became the largest lumber business on the Hudson. From 1900 to 1910, Finch, Pruyn began producing paper. From 1910 to 1920, the company added a sawmill on Henry Street and a third paper machine.
Their landmark office building, which was built with limestone that was quarried from the paper mill site, opened in 1911. From 1920 to 1930, Finch, Pruyn focused on producing newsprint and hanging paper. Lime production closed in 1929 and sawmills became inactive. In 1965, a fourth paper machine was installed. The mill produced papers for envelopes, greeting cards, gift wrap, box liners and labels, maps, and lace paper. In 2007, Finch, Pruyn’s new owners Atlas Holdings LLC and Blue Wolf Capital Partners renamed the company Finch Paper LLC.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at Finch, Pruyn are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Asbestos is dangerous because its fibers are extremely fragile and break easily into tiny particles that your body’s air filtration system can’t trap and expel. When asbestos gets into your lungs and stays there, it can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. Risk of diagnosis increases with the length of time that a person has been exposed although even short exposures can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. The most common causes of asbestos exposure are in the workplace or from products in the home. Spouses and family members of workers can also be exposed to asbestos dust and fibers from the clothing the workers wore home from job sites like Finch, Pruyn.
Mesothelioma is a rare disease that is diagnosed between 2,500 and 3,000 times each year. Anyone who has been exposed to asbestos is at risk for developing mesothelioma or lung cancer. Although most companies knew that asbestos was dangerous, they continued to allow their employees to work with and around asbestos without protective gear until the late 1970s.
