The Consolidated Machine Tool Corporation was formed in 1922 through the merger of five companies: Betts Machine Company, Colburn Machine Tool Company, Hilles & Jones Company, Modern Tool Company and Newton Machine Tool Company. The Consolidated Machine Tool manufacturing facility was located on Blossom Road in Rochester, New York, and it produced tools and machinery used in plastic and metal manufacturing. In 1951, Consolidated Machine Tool was acquired by the Farrel-Birmingham Company. The Rochester factory operated as a division of Farrel until 1983, when the product line was sold to the Conlon Corporation.
Prior to the late 1970s, asbestos-containing materials were utilized in construction and maintenance at Consolidated Machine Tool. Inhaling dust and particles from the application of asbestos-containing materials placed workers at risk for developing serious health problems. Even those who were not in direct contact with asbestos materials remain at risk for the development of asbestos-related diseases. If you or a loved one were once employed by Consolidated Machine Tool Corporation, and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer or another asbestos-related disease, we urge you to contact us regarding your legal rights.
