Jülich-Kirchberg, Germany

This is a German Wellpappenwerk, a factory producing corrugated fiberboard. This paper-based material is used in the manufacture of shipping containers and corrugated boxes. The factory was founded in 1853 by Carl Eichhorn.


In 1960 the factory moved to this site. The old buildings have been abandoned when the factory moved to a new and modern building on the same site. In 2016 the old buildings are demolished to make place for new buildings. The company is still active today with more than 280 employees working in three factories.
