Established in 1906, Campbell Shipyard was located in San Diego, California. Initially, it specialized in building and repairing tuna seiners. In the 1960s, the name of the business was changed to the one we know today. Subsequently, Campbell Shipyard was made public, but this was not a successful endeavor. Therefore, it was sold in 1979. Asbestos was involved to a great extent in the manufacturing of ships, which is why people who worked for this company are in great danger of developing serious diseases today. Perhaps the former employees who have the highest risk of becoming ill are insulators, as they had to handle raw asbestos and products containing asbestos, and during their work, they would unavoidably disturb the mineral, which released toxic fibers.
