    As far back as I can tell was the Northeast Electrical Company in the 1930's. Later Delco. After Delco closed a number of other companies occupied the complex-- Sykes Datatronics, etc. Then the structure was rented to many different tennants for storage before being abandoned. A couple of locals started a fire that destroyed about two thirds of the complex in 2003. One of them was sent to prison.
