In 1953, the Louis DeMarkus Corporation was funded in Buffalo, New York by Arnold Jacobowitz. Jacobowitz had purchased the DeMarkus form, a carbon dioxide generation unit, from Hungarian scientist Louis DeMarkus. Jacobowitz opened the Louis DeMarkus Corporation at 3080 Main Street in Buffalo. The original goal of the site was to design and produce industrial gas equipment. In 1961, the Louis DeMarkus Corporation expanded and was relocated to a 100,000-square foot manufacturing facility at 1210 East Ferry Street. The corporation expanded to manufacture gas, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide removal systems, amongst other chemical processes. In the 1960s and 1970s, the Louis DeMarkus Corporation was known for being one of the biggest industrial carbon dioxide generators of the beverage industry. In 1986, all operations ceased, and the corporation went out of business.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at the Louis DeMarkus Corporation are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Before the 1970s, asbestos insulating cement, block insulation, and pipe covering coated valves, pumps, pipes and boilers, in addition to other steam equipment at the corporation. When machinery was repaired and replaced, asbestos fibers flew into the air and were inhaled by laborers.
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 could also be exposed to asbestos dust and fibers from the clothing the workers wore home from job sites like the Louis DeMarkus Corporation.
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.
