Mobile Overview

Since the 1830s, Mobile was focused on cotton trading. During and after World War I, manufacturing was driving Mobile’s economy including shipbuilding and steel production. Mobile’s population grew between 1940 and 1943 when people flocked to Mobile to work at the shipyards and Brookley Army Air Field. During World War II, Alabama Drydock and Shipbuilding Company was producing ships at a very rapid pace. The Gulf Shipbuilding Corporation, a subsidiary of Waterman Steamship Corporation, built freighters, Fletcher class destroyers, and minesweepers. After World War II, shipbuilding decreased and paper and chemical industries began to grow. In the late 1960s, Brookley Air Force Base closed which led Mobile into an economic depression that lasted into the 1970s. In 1999, shipbuilding began to make a significant comeback with the founding of Austal USA. Currently, Mobile is the ninth largest port in the United States.

Shipbuilding and military job sites in and around the Mobile area like Alabama Dry Dock and Shipbuilding, Avondale Shipbuilding and Brookley Air Force Base have known asbestos exposure risks. Use of asbestos-containing products in these shipyards, military bases as well as other jobsites was prevalent in Mobile especially between 1930-1980. If you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Mobile, you may be at risk to develop malignant mesothelioma.
