The company was founded as a straw-paper mill in 1859. After the sale in 1873, the production were extended in 1880. The houses for the workers emerged 1912. After the Second World War worked more than 300 employees in the paper mill. Each year, 15 to 20 papermakers were trained.

Jobs were lost in 2001, last 115 employees still working in the factory. Finally it was closed in 2007 and demolished in 2011.

The photos were taken during an eight-hour exploration five years ago, in April of 2010.

Sorry for the many photos. ;) But I wanted to show more, because it doesn't exist anymore.

Wow, this is awesome. Loads to see and I love all of the gauges and control panels. Some nice bright colours in there too!

I suppose if it wasn't for people like us documenting these places they'd be lost forever, cheers for posting! :)

Nive one. This was in your backyard, so not a surprise you've been there.

Obviously, you have been there earlier than me. The machine on #4 was almost gone when I visited that place
