abandoned factoryMonday, September 08, 2014
Recently we explored an abandoned factory. This Cleveland subsidiary of two larger companies was formed in 1968. By 1980 it was one of the largest machine-tool manufacturers in the United States. Three short years passed before the company began to suffer due to Japanese competition, the recession, and corporate inefficiencies. They restructured, cut the workforce in half and continued to have lots of ups and downs for the remainder of its years. Eventually in 2002 the factory was completely abandoned after a few years of only a portion of the building being utilized.
