Asbestos Exposure in Dayton, OH

The City of Dayton is the county seat of Montgomery County, Ohio, and the 6th largest city in the state, with a population of just over 141,500. Dayton is a key logistical hub, located at the heart of one of the United States’ largest manufacturing regions. Nearby Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has attracted substantial aeronautics, engineering and high-tech industry to the area. Apart from the airbase, top employers in Dayton include Wright State University, Premier Health Partners and Kettering Health Network.

Dayton was founded in 1796 and incorporated in 1805. Dayton rapidly became a hotbed of industry and innovation. The Barney & Smith Car Company opened in 1849, two years before the railroads reached Dayton, transporting its finished railroad cars on canal boats to the Ohio River. The great flood of 1913 crippled the company financially, and it went out of business in 1921. The Buckeye Iron and Brass Works, established in 1844, cast the crankcase for the Wright Brothers' first engine in 1903. U.S. Patent Office records indicate that in 1890, Dayton was issued the highest number of patents per capita of any U.S. city. The Reynolds and Reynolds Company began printing business forms in 1866, and today provides retailing software, forms and products for the automotive industry, the result of a 1927 agreement to provide Chevrolet dealers with standardized accounting forms. Wartime production and the creation of Wright-Patterson AFB in 1948 kept Dayton’s industries thriving, and the city maintains a strong manufacturing base, augmented in recent decades by research and development, healthcare and other professional services.

Dayton's lengthy history of manufacturing and construction in industries known for their use of asbestos-containing materials puts it in a high-risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk for various diseases, including pleural mesothelioma. If you were exposed to asbestos in Dayton, you may benefit from seeking the advice of an asbestos attorney.
