Auguste was a carlenter owning a furniture factory in Verviers. The Chaplains of Labor, or in French Aumôniers du Travail, bought the castle in 1938 to make it an apostolic school. The castle housed three priests.

Magermans Printing

In the 1958 it was bought by Rémy Magermans who runned a printing workshop. Magermans Printing is a well known name in Belgium. The company was founded in the late forties. A decade later it moved here. The chateau was used as office and house for the family. Surrounding buildings were used as workshops. The company closed when founder Rémy Magermans died in 2009. The buildings were abandoned until 2017, when the workshops were demolished. The castle will be reconverted.
