Greensboro, North Carolina

Situated in the rolling hills of North Carolina’s Piedmont, the city of Greensboro is the third largest city in the state with a population of over 270,000. Greensboro was named for Major General Nathanael Greene, commander of the American forces at the Battle of Guilford Court House in 1781. The city is known as the “Gate City” due to its longstanding role as a transportation hub for the state.

By 1900, a network of rail lines was constructed, connecting the east and west portions of the North Carolina. This created a prime business environment that drew entrepreneurs to the city, including the Cones family (responsible for opening Cone Mills Corp) and the founder of Burlington Industries, Inc. The 1920s brought modern buildings and skyscrapers to Greensboro and the city experienced further expansion. With the growth of local insurance companies, the insurance industry joined textiles and education as a key base for local economy. Lorillard Corp. and Western Electric Company expanded their manufacturing facilities in Greensboro, and Moses H Cone Memorial Hospital opened as a regional, modern medical center. Today, Greensboro is home to several notable company headquarters including Honda Aircraft Company, Lorillard Tobacco Company, Kayser-Roth, and International Textile Group.

As a result of Greensboro’s rich manufacturing and industrial history, exposure to asbestos has been a problem for years. Workers who used or were around asbestos containing materials may be at risk to develop mesothelioma, a type of cancer.
