J&K Boiler Co., Inc., was located at 51 West Third Street in Oswego, New York, and it provided residential and commercial plumbing, as well as the installation and removal of boilers. J&K Boiler also employed laborers to perform routine maintenance on existing boilers, such as the changing of blow out valves. During the 1970s J&K Boiler serviced regional businesses, local school buildings, Oswego Hospital, and nursing homes, in addition to private residences throughout Oswego County.

Up until the late 1970s, numerous residential boilers and furnaces were either covered in asbestos-containing insulation or incorporated asbestos insulation throughout interior sections, as found in square sectional boilers. Asbestos served as an excellent insulation material because of its durability and fire-resistant properties. Asbestos insulation also allowed for boilers and furnaces to operate properly. Massive exposure to asbestos occurred when boilermakers, plumbers and/or HVAC personnel installed, maintained and removed residential and commercial boilers and furnaces. Exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer.
