Donation to maintain Schindlerswerk | Free press


The emergency securing of the buildings in the former Schindlerswerk blue paint factory near Bockau costs around one million euros. The owners receive funding for this, but have to pay a considerable share of their own. The German Foundation for Monument Protection is supporting them this year with proceeds from the Glücksspirale lottery and donations, a total of 15,000 euros. Gerd Bochmann, Managing Director of BOBO GmbH, said that a total of 7,000 square meters of roof area would have to be secured in order to save the historically valuable buildings from decay. “In addition to emergency security work, we will start the gradual renovation of the building fabric in the coming year.” Most recently, the Schindlerswerk development association, which supports the company, secured the Bockau station. The former blue paint factory is one of the World Heritage Sites in the Ore Mountains. (mu)
