Asbestos Exposure at Foster Wheeler
Foster Wheeler was founded in 1891 as the Wheeler Condenser & Engineering Company. The company was known for producing steam condensers, heat exchangers, and pumps. The Power Specialty Company was formed in 1900 in New York with a plant based in Dansville, New York that specialized in producing boiler components. In 1927, the Power Specialty Company and Wheeler Condenser & Engineering Company merged to create the Foster Wheeler Corporation. Foster Wheeler primarily produces boilers for the US Navy and industrial plants.
Belluck & Fox’s History of Helping Foster Wheeler Workers
Belluck & Fox has represented many clients who worked at the Foster Wheeler plant in Dansville, New York, and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and lung cancer. The plant contained asbestos covered pipes, pumps and valves. The equipment used to produce boilers and other products also contained asbestos gaskets and packing.
In addition to representing workers who manufactured Foster Wheeler’s boilers, heaters and economizers, Belluck & Fox has also represented many boiler workers and maintenance workers at other factories and power plants who worked with and around Foster Wheeler boilers and equipment. Belluck & Fox has also represented many US Navy veterans who worked in boiler rooms on ships with Foster Wheeler boilers and equipment. These boilers contained asbestos insulation, blocks, cement, gaskets and packing. Many individuals who worked with Foster Wheeler products as boilermakers, pipe coverers, maintenance mechanics and millwrights are being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer.
