Textilwerke Palla – Werk IV/1

‘VEB Textilwerke Palla – Werk IV/1’ in Glauchau was one of the Palla textile factories in Germany. It was situated along the Zwickau Mulde river.

The city of Glauchau was once one of the most important textile cities in Germany. The first mechanical looms were installed here in the middle of the 19th century and from then on shaped urban development for over 150 years. A process that can still be seen today in structures and buildings. Clothing fabrics from Glauchau had an international reputation. The most striking companies included the ‘Ernst Seifert’ and ‘Boessneck & Meyer’ weaving mills. In 1951, both weaving mills were incorporated under the name ‘VEB Palla-Textilwerke Glauchau’.

The Palla company had several factories during the DDR times. After the unification all the factories had to close down. The enormous size of the company made its privatization all the more difficult. This factory in Glauchau closed down in 1994

The buildings were demolished in 2012. I visited ‘Werk IV/I’ of the Palla company in 2011.
