Troy, Ohio

Troy is a city on the Great Miami River in Ohio. It is the county seat of Miami County, with a population of just over 25,000. Troy's industries reflect its agricultural past as well as its technological future, with employers such as ConAgra Foods, Hobart Corporation, Deltech Polymers Corporation and Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies.

Troy was founded in 1808 and designated the county seat in the same year. The town's proximity to the river, the Miami and Erie Canal, and major roadways soon made it a center of agricultural trade and industry. Transportation was an early manufacturing focus, beginning with the Troy Buggy Works. The Troy Carriage Sun Shade Company began making sun shades in 1887, and expanded into auto windshields and other products in the 20th century before becoming a subsidiary of Hobart Corporation in 1960. Today, as Bags By Troy, the company makes umbrellas and specialty bags. Hobart Electric Manufacturing Company was founded in 1897 to produce small electric motors. During the 20th century, food choppers, electric mixers and other commercial food machines were added to the product line. Several Troy locations have seen successive businesses come and go. The ConAgra Foods frozen food plant was the home of Dinner Bell Foods, and Braun Brothers Packing Company, a pork products company notable for adopting a computerized system in the early 1960s to calculate sausage recipes based on cost and ingredients on-hand, a process previously done by hand. In 1946, Goodrich Corporation established its Aircraft Wheels and Brakes Facility on the site of the former WACO Aircraft Company. Hobart, ConAgra and Goodrich continue to be among Troy's top companies.

Troy's history of industrial activity and adaptive reuse makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern. Workers and their loved ones who have been exposed to asbestos may be at risk for asbestos cancer. If you were exposed to asbestos in Troy and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting a mesothelioma law firm.
