Burlington, New Jersey

Burlington is a city on the Delaware River in Burlington County, New Jersey. The city has a current population of just under 10,000 residents in an area of about three square miles. First settled by Quakers in 1677, Burlington has been reincorporated several times, most recently in 1851. Perhaps due to the influence of Quaker traditions of community and positive social action, Burlington is home to the state's oldest library, founded in 1757, and the Endeavor Fire Company, organized in 1795. Current top employers include McCollister's Transportation Group, Inc. and the Masonic Home of New Jersey.

During the 19th century, Burlington became a prominent manufacturing city. Shipbuilding and Canning were early industries. After the Civil War, shoemaking rose to prominence. The J.F. Budd Baby Shoe Factory, founded in 1884, billed itself as the largest baby shoe factory in the world. The factory was later occupied by a textile mill and in the 1970s by West Electronics. Today the historic building has been adapted for residential use. In 1866, Andrew McNeal built a small pipe shop which became part of the United States Cast Iron Pipe and Foundry Company in 1899, and the company’s headquarters were located in Burlington until 1952. The Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation was founded in 1924. Originally an apparel wholesaler, the company now operates a chain of retail department stores. The 20th century also brought a number of chemical companies to Burlington. Hercules, Inc. operated a plant from the 1940s until 1993, and Hooker Chemical built a manufacturing facility in 1967 which they operated until it was acquired by Geon Company in 1999. Geon became PolyOne Corporation a year later and ceased production at the plant around 2003.

Burlington has a diverse history of manufacturing activity, much of it during a period when asbestos-containing materials were widely used. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Mesothelioma treatment facilities in and around Burlington are listed at the bottom of this page. If you were diagnosed with mesothelioma in Burlington, you may also benefit from seeking the advice of a mesothelioma lawyer.
