Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in South Point, Ohio

South Point is a village in Lawrence County, Ohio. Located at the juncture of the Ohio and Big Sandy Rivers, South Point also sits at the meeting point of Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky. South Point was incorporated as a village in 1888, and has a current population of just over 3,700. Chemical processing dominated industry in South Point for most of the 20th century. The Point, a 610-acre former chemical manufacturing complex, is currently in use as an office park, home to companies such as Engines, Inc., M&M Mailing and Mercier's.

South Point was settled in 1798 by Revolutionary War veteran William "Ranger" Davidson. Initially, South Point was primarily a frontier farming community, with the small businesses necessary to village life, such as the E. E. Brubaker blacksmith shop. During World War II, the country's manufacturing needs increased rapidly, including the need for ammunition. The Buckeye Ordnance Works was built in 1942 to produce ammonium nitrate explosives for the military. In 1946, Allied Chemical acquired the site, manufacturing fertilizers there until 1978. Ashland Oil, Inc. took over the property in 1979, demolishing most of the older structures and building several new plants, including a coal-water fuel pilot plant. Other companies followed suit, including South Point Ethanol and Air Liquide Corporation's Cardox division. Both plants closed in 1995, and the site spent several years undergoing cleanup of toxic chemicals after being placed on the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Priorities List in 1984. Today, The Point has been redeveloped as an active industrial park.

South Point's manufacturing history has been largely concentrated in a period when asbestos-containing materials were in widespread use, making asbestos exposure and the risk of mesothelioma a concern for workers.
