    This plant was built in 1951 to specialize in distribution transformers and meters, and expanded shortly after in 1954 with a new bay for research, development, and testing of high-voltage transformers. The company was later bought by VA Tech, and then Rolls-Royce before shutting down in 2005. Update: July, 2010 - It's totally gone.
