Asbestos Exposure in Fremont, CA

Fremont occupies 92 square miles on the southeast side of the San Francisco Bay in Alameda County, California. Home to over 214,000 people, Fremont is the fourth most populous city in the Bay area and California's fifth largest city. Fremont was incorporated on January 23, 1956, when five communities in the area, Centerville, Niles, Irvington, Mission San Jose, and Warm Springs, joined together to form a city.

By the late 1900s, Fremont became more industrialized. General Motors automotive assembly plant was the town's largest employer, and Fremont was known for its drag strip. Eventually, the GM plant became a joint venture automotive assembly plant of Toyota and General Motors called NUMMI. Toyota and NUMMI shut down its operations in early 2010. Companies headquartered in Fremont include Lam Research, Silicon Graphics International, SYNNEX, and Volterra Semiconductor. Among Fremont’s current top employers are Washington Hospital, Western Digital, Seagate Magnetics, and Oplink Communications.
