The factory dates from 1941 and is notable for its ties to Durham business titan Richard Harvey Wright and its own role as a supplier to the U.S. Navy during World War II and NASA up to the present day. Every spacecraft NASA has flown, including the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station, has carried parts made in the Durham factory, according to the city's landmark-designation report.
