In 1958, the Rochester Acoustical Corporation was founded in Rochester, New York. It was a contracting company that was involved in spraying asbestos fireproofing on commercial and industrial buildings throughout the area. Rochester Acoustical also used asbestos joint compound to cover nail holes and seams between sheets of drywall before painting. In 1976, Rochester Acoustical and the Mader Corporation merged. The company is now known as Mader Construction Company, Inc. and is located in Elma, New York.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at the Rochester Acoustical Corporation are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Before the 1970s, Rochester Acoustical laborers applied asbestos fireproofing, acoustical ceiling tiles, and joint compound to many Rochester locations including the Xerox Building, University of Rochester, Rochester Institute of Technology, Midtown Towers, and Kodak Park (Building 47).
Asbestos fire proofing was mixed and then sprayed onto the steel beams of these Rochester buildings. This was a process that agitated the asbestos dust and caused it to fly throughout the air and be 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 can also be exposed to asbestos dust and fibers from the clothing the workers wore home from job sites like the Rochester Acoustical 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.
