The Brunson Instrument Company produces supreme quality optical instrumens for surveying and navigational instruments. Founded by A.N. Brunson as an one-man repair shop in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, it developed over decades. When he needed an absolutely rock-stable environment to facilitate the production of fine instruments, he had the revolutionary of an underground factory. The benefits are obvious: simple temperature and humidity control, high security, absolutely no building sway or traffic vibrations.
The factory was built into a limestone cliff, and is covered by 26m of 300 Million years old limestone. The whole facory has a size of almost 20,000m², all underground. Only the entrance is visible from outside, and it is fascinating as it is several steps higher than the surrounding parking lot.
