The period after the Second World War was the most successful in Turner & Newall's history, when the company emerged as the ‘Asbestos Giant’. In 1949, the company's head office was moved to Manchester and named, appropriately, Asbestos House. However, this expansion was bought at a price. More asbestos meant more dust and continued risk for Turner & Newall staff. It gradually became apparent that the risk included not only asbestosis, but also cancer.
