The Horizon C-Series and Single/Double Pitch skylights were used throughout the factory to boost visible light transmittance and a better climate control environment
The Northland Workforce Training Center in Buffalo, New York, is located in an old factory, formerly known as Niagara Machine & Tools Works, which is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
