A-Best Products Company, a textile manufacturer, produced safety clothing and related products that were heat resistant.  These cloth products were sold to plants nationwide for workers to use as protection from heat.

A-Best products include coveralls, aprons, gloves, mittens, coats and drop cloths.  End users of A-Best Products included anyone who made, wore, or distributed A-Best Products.  Unfortunately, even those who laundered A-Best products or were present while others were doing the laundry may have been exposed to A-Best products.

In 2004, the A-Best Asbestos Settlement Trust was established.  Among the approved job sites in New York state are:

  • Buffalo China in Buffalo, New York,
  • the General Motors Central Foundry in Massena, New York,
  • Chevrolet in Tonawanda, New York,
  • Colt Industries in Syracuse, New York,
  • Corning Glass in Corning, New York,
  • Republic Steel in Buffalo, New York, and
  • Roblin Steel in Dunkirk, New York.
