Brauerei Sternburg (Germany)

The Sternburg beer brand has a rich history dating back to 1277. Over the years, the beer production changed location more than once. At one point the brewery became a VEB (people owned company). Even though this particular brewery closed several years ago, the Sternburg brand is still alive as its production – once again – moved to more modern facilities. This industrial landmark will however soon be reconverted into an office and residential units.

VEB SKT (Germany)

Even though the roots of the steel manufacturing industry in this region date back to the second half of the nineteenth century, this particular company was only established around the mid twentieth century – in the 1960s. Similar to many other companies in Germany, the manufacturing plant at a certain point became a VEB (Volkseigener Betrieb), a people-owned-company which – in its heydays – employed more than 10,000 workers. The factory specialized in steel parts for heavy industrial purposes – from whole steel rolling installations to cranes. After the company was privatized, it was split into different branches, each with their own ‘speciality’. Although this particular plant has been abandoned, the company still thrives as it moved its production to more modern facilities.
