    In the beginning this used to be a textile factory. The production started in 1855.
    They reconverted the factory in a paper factory in 1897. The story begins with the paper until later, after the turmoil of World War II. The paper factory had 2 steam turbines that made enough power to provide energy to surrounding municipalities. The factory had a strong development test and control department, to provide a consistently high product quality. Even a special library with a number of international literature on training and education influenced the activities of the services.

    They worked internationally like providing korean signs on agricultural paper bags. Spanish immigrant workers printed on a remote machine for the German foreign packaging, the packaged products then find their way back to Europe.

    The reason for closing a big factory like this that used to have more then 1000 workers in the late '70 had to do with multiple things. Due to a lack of kraft pulp, the company expanded to locations such as the Rhine near Duisburg Mohnheim and continued into the 1960s. The insurance of the building of a new dam and the possible closing train rail track could helped with the descion to close the factory.

    In 2006 the location was also used for a film called 'Free Float'. Now the buildings are in total decay. It's very dangerous inside roofs are about to collapse and because they stripped a lot of parts there are big holes in the floor.
