The manufacturing industry has been affected by asbestos-related illnesses for decades now. Due to the long latency period between exposure and first sign of symptoms, it is not unusual for historic employers such as manufacturers to be difficult to identify and locate. The company may have been dissolved many years ago and if no employer’s liability insurers for the period of exposure can be identified, it could be a pointless exercise restoring that company to the register for the purposes of legal proceedings.
