Spremberg, Germany

This old factory in Germany has been abandoned for some years. Pressstofffabrik Spremberg was founded in 1867 by Firma H. Römmler.  Gramophone records and insulating material were made from waste of the textile factories nearby.

In 1920 they started the production and processing of high-quality molding materials formed using a pressure-heat process. In 1930 they started to produce resin bonded laminated panels. The panels were named the DDR brand Sprelacart, composed of Spremberg, laminate and Carton. The heat- and chemical-resistant, scratch-resistant panels were used in kitchens.

After the Second World War, during the Soviet ruled DDR times, the factory was dismanteled. But not much later a new factory was built to resume production. The factory is still active today.
