New York Shipbuilding Corporation Areas With Asbestos Exposure

New York Shipbuilding Corporation

With more than 500 vessels completed for the United States Navy, United States Merchant Marine, United States Coast Guard, and other maritime organizations, the New York Shipbuilding Corporation played a significant role in building ships used during both world wars. When World War I broke out, the shipyard was highly active, constructing a large number of ships. During World War II, the shipyard extended its product range to include the construction of a battleship, Independence-class light carriers, and more than ninety landing craft and tanks. New York Shipbuilding Company depended heavily on asbestos for most of the period it was in operation. As a result, thousands of employees were placed in danger of developing devastating diseases.
