Has anyone ever heard of this Company?
Do you know what these machines do?

Appears to be lathes or some special tooling, elec motor run due to all the wall wiring, that turn long stock. Those support tubes are holding the stock, maybe hex stock, for making the steel base of spark plugs. Early form of rotary feed automatic lathe turning :-)

It's interesting and noteworthy that with all the wiring in the room, there are just two light fixtures to be seen (that I can find anyway), and small ones at that. With all that power equipment you'd think lighting things up would be a bigger priority.

These machines are automatic chucker or screw machines (lathe work)

I run those type of machines at my day job, you install the octagon bar stock in the four tubes in the back as the machine runs it moves inward with different tools in six positions to come up with a finished part. Each rotation does a different cut to the part till last rotation cuts off a finished part. They are old dinasours compared to the new bar fed lathes but if you wreck one of these it is back up and running in an hour, the bar feds, call the manufacturer. A week long tear down is going to happen!
