Former Employees of 2 Leeds Companies Urged to Come Forwards

Leeds Carpenter, Terry Ellis, very sadly died last June of Mesothelioma; a cancer of the lining of the lungs, aged 72. He has been exposed to asbestos at two Leeds companies where had worked in the 1960’s; George Whimpey and John Atkinson and Sons Ltd.

Mesothelioma is a very aggressive form of cancer and it is incurable.

Ex-employees of the company, and in particular those who may have worked with Terry are being urged to come forward and talk to law firms, to identify whether they too were exposed and what measures may have ben in place to protect them, and to identify fellow employees who may have also been exposed.

These days all parties are more aware of the dangers of the silent killer, asbestos. Even though it is reported that 75% of schools in England and Wales contain the substance. Unbelievable really, that our children are being exposed. Let’s hope that the action groups and government can stamp this out.

The first step of managing asbestos is to have an asbestos survey carried out. We offer all types of asbestos surveys and cover the UK. Most of our work is in Yorkshire and Lancashire, in particularΒ Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield, Halifax, and Wakefield.

Client Testimonials

Fantastic service! Quick, efficient and friendly. Paul went the extra mile to help. Would recommend without question

– Kate Seaman, Leeds

I called Paul yesterday afternoon. He arrived on site at 9.00 am this morning, completed his investigation and emailed me the results of the lab test this afternoon. Couldn't have been more efficient and knowledgeable. Very good price too. Highly recommended.

– Ivan Button, Bradford

We needed a fast turnaround on an asbestos report for a care home we were buying for Welcome Independent Living Ltd. The following day Paul attended, fast tracked the results and sent an electronic copy of the report. Great value for money and superb service with free advice from the start. We will certainly use PAC Asbestos Surveys again in the future when required.
