Zwirnerei Sachsenring Glauchau

THE ABANDONED FACTORY IN GERMANY

‘VEB Zwirnerei Sachsenring Glauchau’ was an abandoned factory in Neukirchen-Schweinsburg, Germany.

This factory produced yarns and threads. It was built in 1936 as ‘Negergarnfabrik Gebrüder Wolf’. Reason for this strange name ‘Negergarn’ was that they claimed that their textiles will not loose the color after washing, same as black people also don’t loose their color when they wash. In 1953 the meanwhile renamed factory was merged with the ‘Thüringer Teppichfabriken’.

It was a big company with several factories in the region. The factory made ‘Sari’ yarn and the famous travel set ‘Zellwoll-Stopftwist’ to repair clothing. Later the factory had new managment and was renamed ‘Spinnerei Greiz’. The factory closed down in 1993 just after the unification of Germany. I took these photos of ‘VEB Zwirnerei Sachsenring Glauchau’ in 2011. The site was demolished in 2013.
