This excerpt taken from the COL 10-K filed Nov 21, 2005.
As of September 30, 2005, we operated 18 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and one manufacturing facility each in Mexico, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The Company also had engineering facilities, sales offices, warehouses and service locations in approximately 75 cities and 20 countries around the world. These facilities have aggregate floor space of approximately 5.7 million square feet, substantially all of which is in use. Of this floor space, approximately 65% is owned and approximately 35% is leased. There are no major encumbrances on any of our plants or equipment, other than financing arrangements which in the aggregate are not significant. In the opinion of management, our properties have been well maintained, are in sound operating condition and contain all equipment and facilities necessary to operate at present levels. A summary of floor space of these facilities at September 30, 2005 is as follows:
We have facilities with a total of at least 100,000 square feet in the following cities: Cedar Rapids, Iowa (2,480,000 square feet), Richardson, Texas (280,000 square feet), Melbourne, Florida (275,000 square feet), Pomona, California (240,000 square feet), Heidelberg, Germany (240,000 square feet), San Jose, California (225,000 square feet), Irvine, California (220,000 square feet), Coralville, Iowa (180,000 square feet), Toulouse, France (130,000 square feet) and Mexicali, Mexico (110,000 square feet). Most of our facilities are generally shared for the benefit of our Government Systems and Commercial Systems businesses. Two owned facilities with 165,000 total square feet of space are currently vacant.
Certain of our facilities, including those located in California and Mexicali, Mexico, are located near major earthquake fault lines. We maintain earthquake insurance with a $40 million deductible with respect to these facilities. We also maintain property insurance for wind damage, including hurricanes and tornados, for our facilities. This insurance covers physical damage to property and any resulting business interruption. All losses are subject to a $5 million deductible with certain exceptions that could affect the deductible.
