I still remember the wool-combing well; I used to work there every now and then. It was very interesting to see how the wool was worked.It has long been the largest company of its kind in the world.
The processing of raw wool at the Bremen site was discontinued on February 27, 2009 after 125 years. In 2012, parts of the company premises were listed as an ensemble and three buildings as a single monument under monument protection.
