Road Name History:
A factory (previously manufactory) or manufacturing plant is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another.

Factories arose with the introduction of machinery during the Industrial Revolution when the capital and space requirements became too great for cottage industry or workshops. Early factories that contained small amounts of machinery, such as one or two spinning mules, and fewer than a dozen workers have been called "glorified workshops".

Most modern factories have large warehouses or warehouse-like facilities that contain heavy equipment used for assembly line production. Large factories tend to be located with access to multiple modes of transportation, with some having rail, highway and water loading and unloading facilities.

Brand/Importer Information:
IMEX Model Company, Inc. 15391 Flight Path Drive Brooksville, FL 34604 Phone 352.754.8522 Fax 352.754.1882 IMEX Model Co., Inc. started in 1974 as a small hobby distributor located in Central Islip, NY. In 1992, citing warm weather and new opportunities, IMEX moved it's operations to Brooksville, Florida. Over time IMEX has evolved from small distributor to a worldwide importer/exporter and manufacturer of world class hobby and toy products. IMEX has been recognized all over the world for it's array of figure sets, showcases and radio control rims/tires. In 2008, IMEX became the exclusive US importer of COBI® Blocks from Poland. The COBI® line is fully compatible with other leading blocks like Lego® and Mega Blocks®. In addition, IMEX is the sole US importer of Oxford Blocks from Korea. IMEX has also colaborated with Oxford on block sets featuring officially licensed CASE IH® and New Holland tractors. Trinity Toyz® is another IMEX building block exclusive. This line features Biblical themed sets like The Last Supper and a Nativity Set. Look for more releases in the near future! Near the end of 2012, IMEX signed one of it's largest agreements yet with Taigen Tanks. This 1/16 scale radio control tank line features some of the nicest detailed R/C tanks on the market today. Whether it's a full metal Tiger I or an exact replica of the M41 Walker Bulldog were sure you will agree these are a force to be reckoned with! WE have several new models in the works so be sure to check our site for updates! IMEX is always looking to expand our dealer network. If you own a hobby shop, toy store, museum shop or anything in between, please fill out our dealer application and we'll be sure to get back to you.

Manufacturer Information:
Most Chinese copies are locked in to a single manufacturer. This means I cannot simply call the factory in China that makes Atlas GP9's and ask them to run them for me under my new company name 'TroveStar Model Trains'. In order to protect the IP of the vendor that commissioned the model, the various Chinese factories try (at least somewhat) to restrict who can make what.

There are exceptions. When Sanda Kan first started developing rolling stock for Life-Like in the late 1980s, no such protection existed. As result the exact same models being imported by Life-Like were also being imported by Industrial Rail (and possibly others). Life-Like was not the only importer to be burned like this. Model Power developed cars in China to duplicate rolling stock toolings made in Europe and the US only to see those same models get imported by Life-Like.

It is perhaps the case that Industrial Rail got permission to import the Sanda Kan models from Life-Like or that Life-Like go permission from Model Power to bring in the PS-1's but it seems more likely that the factory managers in Southern China got greedy. But, you never know.
