Based along the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, United States, Oregon Shipbuilding Corporation was a World War II emergency shipyard. Almost 600 Liberty and Victory ships were constructed at this shipyard between 1941 and 1945 as part of the Emergency Shipbuilding Program. Asbestos was an ideal material for use in shipbuilding since it resisted corrosion and intense heat. If your diagnosis confirms an illness stemming from asbestos exposure, you need to talk to a lawyer.
