Louwers & Co BV
Louwers & Co trades (traded?) in textile machinery. Before they occupied these buildings it was the home of "NV Transportwerktuigen en Machinefabriek voorheen G.B. Sanders & Zn", Sanders for short. The company, over a century old and once employing almost 300 men, went bankrupt in 1982.

I am late, once again. Parts of the factory have already been demolished, leaving only the foundations. Another part is just the skeleton of the hall it used to be.

From the front gate. This part is still intact.

The office building. Notice the machine in front of the building.

From the same street. Fence is passable but a bit too much in view to my likings.
Around the back, crossing the former railroad to Enschede Zuid, was a seemingly often used hole in the fence. Here the results of the demolishen work are more obvious.


Skeleton.
