Founded in 1882 as a metal foundry under the name Schumann & Koeppe, the company expanded steadily in the following decades and also changed under the changing political omens of the time. During the National Socialist era, the company produced fittings for the German submarine fleet, among others, while in GDR times it contributed to the construction of the "anti-fascist state" as "VEB Industriearmaturen und Apparatebau Leipzig". But what remained of it after 1990 and the liquidation by the Treuhand? The threat of decay was averted and little by little the former production facilities are being filled with new life. Under the name "Westwerk" young, creative people have created their free space to paint, make music or tinker with folding boats. Discover with us this cultural lighthouse in the west of Leipzig.
