Biographies

Established in 1937, James Hardie and Co Pty Ltd manufactured fibre cement building products and asbestos cement pipes. The company went on to be one of Australia's biggest producers of asbestos. The company changed its name to James Hardie Asbestos Limited and then James Hardie Industries. In 2001 the company delisted and moved to the Netherlands after a series of asbestos-related court actions taken against the company. It still has major business operations in the USA.
