Scotland has had a long association with the asbestos industry. Scottish entrepreneurs were among the pioneers in developing the manufacture of asbestos products, with the first companies appearing in the 1870s. One account suggests that it was two Scottish businessmen who first introduced the mineral to the United Kingdom, establishing the Patent Asbestos Manufacturing Company in Glasgow to process asbestos, imported initially from Canada in 1871.


In 2014 Clydebank Asbestos Group commissioned Jephson Robb, and internationally recognised artist, to design a memorial as a tribute to all those, known and unknown, who have died of an asbetos-related disease.


The memorial is an impressive feature in the heart of the town centre and was unveiled on 30th May 2015 by Fiona Maguire, the widow of Frank Maguire, an iconic figure in the fight for Truth and Justice.
