Long Description:
from IBM history "Back before there was an International Business Machines (c.1924); back before Thomas J. Watson, Sr., joined IBM's predecessor, the Computing-Tabulating-Machine Company (1914); even back before the formation of CTR itself (1911), IBM's very first manufacturing facility had already begun to take shape in Endicott, N.Y."

This site was sold in 2002, but some buildings were leased by IBM for 10 years. It had development, training and manufacturing. The buildings were referred to by numbers, building 28, building 40, for example.
Product manufactured here: IBM computers and printers
