Poland The Pipe & Fitting Company Ltd. (Poland - May 2015)

Recommended Posts

A state-of-the-art manufacturer of pipes and fittings, once fully owned by the state, went bankrupt under suspicious circumstances, just before it’s 50th birthday.

Only a year before the 50th anniversary, the state sold 85% of the shares in the company to a private investment firm for roughly 300K (GBP). (the remaining 15% remained with the state.)

 

Shortly after that, the employees (while enjoying their christmas holiday), received a letter stating the company filled for bankruptcy.

Almost 400 workers lost their job and numerous attempts were made to reboot or sell the company. Unfortunately none of them successful. 

A few years later, questions were raised about the initial transaction, from state to private investor, as the remaining assets of the company were estimated at a total value of 5M (GBP). (Roughly 17x the original investment of the investment firm.)

 

A short while ago, the site has been sold to a new owner and is currently being repurposed/renovated in order to house a production facility for a local company, potentially creating 200 new jobs. :) 

 

 

Anyhow, enough history for today, so on with the shots;

      Everything left as if the hotel's owners left it with the thought that they will come back in a moment. Or maybe the contrary, with the thought that they can not go back there anymore. We know that they did not come back. We do not know why. At the bottom, aprons, cups, the inscription "Welcome wedding guests". Upstairs furniture, appliances, personal items, books. Everything is abandoned, not packed, segregated, as in the planned move. No. Abandoned and destroyed. Scattered. Maybe by a vandal who accidentally got there and could not respect the place and things that belonged to someone. Or maybe by someone who did it with the deliberation that was looking for something.

      When I die, honey
      when I part with the sun
      and I will be a long rather sad thing
      will you take care of me then?
      you will embrace your arms
      and you'll fix what broke cruel fate ...
