    For a foundry, the shop looks rather normal. Perhaps untidy in places, but certainly serviceable. Too bad it is due to be shuttered.

    The time has come to bulldoze it and build a new one. Ford had to do that here in the US back in the late 70’s. We were getting hypoid gearsets in new trucks that were past tolerance on runout and howled from the day differential was assembled at the factory. The equipment used to produce them needed to be shipped to China to make paperclips, it was so worn out.

    well its time to get it modernized, don’t you think?
    A nice idea: the heat produced by the foundry:
    instead of let it waste trough the chimny produce elektricity with it
    so you have an on foundry with a back up electrity plant
