Kortrijk, Belgium

The early 1990s are the beginning of the end of the once so flourishing cotton industry of Kortrijk. Every year more textile companies stop production in Belgium. The KTM, short for Kortrijkse Textiel Maatschappij, was a spinning mill. The company went bankrupt in 2001 due to the debts they had. The production went well, but the costs of machines and buildings were to high for the company. The oldest buildings dates back to 1950, the newer halls were built in the 1970s. In their peak year during the 1980s there were 800 employees. But automation of the production was the final end for them, the spinning mill had to close its doors.
