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.

From Wikipedia
Brand/Importer Information:
POLA was founded in 1957 by Horst Pollak providing HO and then later N scale European building kits. In the 1980's POLA was one of the first manufacturers to make buildings in G Scale and then dominated that market with its extensive line of quality heavy-duty weatherproof building kits. Faller then bought POLA in 1997. The POLA G buildings are being continued by Faller under the "POLA-G" name, while the other HO and N scale buildings will be marketed under the Faller brand name. Some of the buildings are also still sold under the Piko brand name.
Most of the kits have sold over several decades, hence can be found it at least three (3) types of different Pola packaging, reflecting their production period.

Pola structures were distributed and rebranded in North America by Atlas and Model Power, among others.
