AP Green was a company founded in 1910 and began manufacturing bricks to resist high heat in factories and plants. The company incorporated asbestos into several refractory products, insulating cement and castable insulation. Asbestos is a cheap, accessible and durable product with a resistance to heat and flame, and as a result was utilized very heavily in some industries.
Any employee exposed to asbestos products for long durations or in an enclosed work area risked the development of cancer later in life. Asbestos diseases and cancers have a long latency period, and may not present and be diagnosed for decades after initial exposure.
Due to thousands of lung cancer and mesothelioma cases related to AP Green products and workplaces, the company faces many personal injury and toxic exposure lawsuits from asbestos victims. AP Green filed for bankruptcy in 2002 and established an asbestos trust fund for qualifying plaintiffs.
