Vuylsteke Gieterijen NV

THE ABANDONED FACTORY IN BELGIUM

‘Vuylsteke Gieterijen NV’ is an old iron foundry that made products for drainage canals.

In 2002, the foundry was taken over by the Lecomte foundry. The new owner could not save the company. As a result the factory went bankrupt in 2003 and 111 people became jobless. The grounds of the factory in Roeselare are heavily contaminated. But in 2012 the buildings were demolished and the site was cleaned. There will be a new business site here. I took these photos of ‘Vuylsteke Gieterijen NV’ in 2010.
