About raw materials and shiny enamel
Can we make it? Absolutely! The definition of manufacturing industry is the manufacture of new products from materials. A branch of sport that is constantly changing, innovating and responding to the possibilities but also the requirements of the times. The factories of the past have now been written off, most of them demolished. Discover what industrial development means for the landscape. And along the way, think about what that landscape will look like in the future. If most of our products will roll out of a 3D printer?

Apple sauce
The DRU was an enamel pan factory in Ulft. The first production took place at the end of the nineteenth century. Enamel is a layer of glass that is applied to the metal in a liquid state. The most important feature is the protection against rust. At last the housewife no longer had to watch what she put in the pan, as she had to with copper pans. After sanding off the tin layer, you could no longer prepare acidic products such as applesauce in it.

Steam carpentry
Here on the Stationsstraat in Wehl is a monumental "steam carpentry factory" from 1909. Nowadays it would simply be called a sawmill. The factory was founded by Theodor Damen. In addition to being a factory owner, he was a contractor and an architect. He also had a luxurious residential house built on the property. The factory fits in perfectly with the emerging industrialization at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. The location was mainly chosen strategically: the sawn wood was transported by train via the newly laid track. Large consumers of wood were the coal mines in Limburg, which used the planks to prop up mine galleries.
