Schraubenfabrik Zehner in Saalfeld

In Saalfeld-Germany there is a real jewel to be found. The Screw factory Zehner dating back to 1910.
Founded by Ernst Zehner the factory was specialised in making Screws for all purposes. In time automatic screw machines were installed. During worldwar 1 the factory was forced to produce parts for machineguns. In 1926 about 15 employees were working in the factory. Later on around 1930 the factory was enlarged. Also the main power source was changed from electro-engine to diesel.All the machines in the factory were powered by a belt and pulley system. Today you can see how the factory looked like in 1930, because no changes have been made afterwards. More information with the photos.

A big thank you to Professor Bernhard Mai from Ertfurt who made my visit possible.
