Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Maywood, California

Maywood is a small city in southeast Los Angeles County, California. Maywood occupies 1.18 square miles and has an estimate population of 28,000, making it one of the smallest incorporated cities in Los Angeles County. Maywood is part of the Gateway Cities region. It is bordered by the city of Bell, Vernon, Huntington Park, and Commerce.

During much of the 20th century, Maywood prospered as Postwar Maywood was a flourishing blue-collar, multi-ethnic suburb of Los Angeles. There were a number of industrial jobs in aerospace, food processing, auto and furniture manufacturing. The Chrysler Corporation had an auto assembly plant in Maywood from the 1920s until its closing in July 1971. Willys-Overland built its California factory in Maywood in 1929 and became the second automobile manufacturer to build a major plant in the city. After the United States entered World War II, automobile production for civilians was phased out and in November 1941, automobile assembly at Maywood ceased. A number of automobile plants were retooled to manufacture war machinery and for three years during the war, the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation rented the plant building from Willys-Overland for that purpose. Willys-Overland began to manufacture the first Jeeps for civilians in 1945. Jeep Trucks and Station Wagons were incorporated into the West Coast Division's "final assemblies" production lines in 1948. In 1952, Willys-Overland introduced a new post-war model car, the Aero, and they were assembled in both Maywood and Toledo.
