This abandoned carpet factory was founded in the 1950s and at times employed more than 600 people at this location. However, since the population's preference for textile floor coverings decreased sharply over the decades in favor of easier-care and more durable materials (laminate), production was reduced more and more over the years, and at some point in the 2010s, an application for insolvency was filed, and the factory was finally closed in 2016.
Test reports that can be found in old files on site indicate that the carpets made there were of very high quality.
In 2018, the insolvency administrator surprisingly sold the area to an investor. The local newspapers write that the city hopes to use the more than 20 hectare site for commercial, residential and cultural purposes, each with about a third.
