To address the traditional needs of quality, speed and economically production of prepress, the company was in need for a reconstruction. The old building and aged printing facilities were left abandoned and a new modern company did rise on a other location. Today the abandoned printing office is almost empty. A small amount of printing units is still standing packed on pallets. To bad that most of machines are gone, but anyway i could made some fine photographs.

Luckely most of the old leaden and tin made type characters are left behind. Complete alphabets are stored in old wooden boxes archived by their typeface name, truly amazing. Between the old press machines there was also a original Heidelberg. The attic contains lots of original printing plates and also dusty books dating back to at least 1887.
