Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Perth Amboy, New Jersey

Perth Amboy, with a population of approximately 47,000, is a city in Middlesex County, New Jersey. Located on the north shore of Raritan Bay, Perth Amboy has been both a resort town and an industrial and shipping center. Present-day Perth Amboy is focused on economic and historic redevelopment, and has been designated an Urban Enterprise Zone, which provides incentives to encourage business and investment. Notable employers in Perth Amboy include Raritan Bay Medical Center, Preferred Freezer Services, Tropical Cheese Industries, and industrial supply distributor Madsen & Howell.

Perth Amboy takes its name from a combination of Algonquin and Scottish words, reflecting the city's early settlers. With its first European settlement in 1684, Perth Amboy became a provincial capital, remaining so until 1766. Portions of the original city hall, built in 1714, are still in use. During the 18th century, Perth Amboy was an important link for travelers from New York to Philadelphia, and a ferry service to Staten Island operated until the 1960s. During the 19th century, the city developed several industries, including pottery, copper smelting and chemical manufacturing. In 1895, M. Guggenheim's Sons purchased a copper refinery in Perth Amboy. In 1901, the company merged with American Smelting & Refining Company (ASARCO), which operated the refinery until 1975. Early in the 20th century, the Lewisohn brothers established the Raritan Copper Works, which became a subsidiary of Anaconda Copper Mining Company. The Cheseborough Manufacturing Company, which originated Vaseline petroleum jelly, began manufacturing in Perth Amboy in 1881. Cheseborough merged with cold cream manufacturers Pond's in 1955, and was subsequently acquired by Unilever in 1987. The Perth Amboy factory, once the only producer of Vaseline in the world, no longer exists.

Perth Amboy's history of heavy industry puts it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Perth Amboy, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Harvey Pass. Additionally, mesothelioma lawyers may be able to give guidance if you were exposed to asbestos in Perth Amboy and then diagnosed with mesothelioma.
