Asbestos Exposure in Omaha, NE

Omaha is the largest city in the state of Nebraska, located on the banks of the Missouri River approximately 20 miles north of the Platte River. According to a 2010 census Omaha’s population is 408,958, ranking the city as the 42nd largest in the United States. Omaha has gained international prominence over the years and, today, is home to five Fortune 500 companies and four Fortune 1000 headquarters.

Since its founding in 1854 Omaha, Nebraska has been known as the “Gateway to the West”. The city was founded by land speculators from nearby Council Bluffs, Iowa and before long the city was placed at the center of the Midwestern transportation hub. Early economy consisted of the Union Stockyards and its meat packing industry. At the turn of the century, Omaha Union Stockyards was third in the nation for production and closely rivaled Chicago’s Union Stockyards. Following the Great Depression, Omaha’s economy rebounded with the construction of Offutt Air Force Base and other wartime-related factories such as Glenn L. Martin Company. Since the 1970s, Omaha has seen a steady growth of insurance companies headquartered in the city, as well as many other key businesses. Today, Omaha ranks eighth among the United States’ largest cities both per capita billionaires and Fortune 500 companies. Major Omaha employers include Alegent Health System, Mutual of Omaha, ConAgra Foods, Offutt Air Force Base, and the West Corporation.
