Asbestos Exposure in Albany, OR

Located in the central part of Oregon's most populated region, the Willamette Valley, Albany is situated at the confluence of the Calapooia River and the Willamette River. Albany is the eleventh largest city in Oregon and is the county seat of Linn County. Though most of Albany falls within Linn County, a small portion rests in Benton County. Founded in 1848, Albany is currently home to more than 50,000 residents.

Though Albany is a farming and manufacturing based city, it also depends largely on retail trade, health care and social assistance to drive its economy. Oregon Freeze Dry, incorporated in 1963, is a leading employer in the manufacturing sector. Albany has been referred to as the "Rare Metals Capital of the World" because of its production of zirconium, hafnium, and titanium. A major producer of these metals, primarily zirconium, in Albany is the Wah Chang Corporation. Also, Albany has been designated the “Grass Seed Capital of the World” as it, and the surrounding communities, are major exporters of grass seed. Other crops produced include corn, beans, mint, strawberries, and hazelnuts.
