Scheufelen overhauls industrial landmark in the Lenningen valley
Papierfabrik Scheufelen, based in Lenningen, Germany, will shortly begin necessary renovation work on its old chimney. Rising to an unmissable height of 96 metres and achieving landmark status well beyond the valley's boundaries, the historic factory chimney of internationally renowned Papierfabrik Scheufelen has become a little long in the tooth. The highly respected Wayss & Freytag engineering company in Stuttgart was commissioned with planning and building the structure in 1934. The landmark chimney, which was built in 1935, is visible from afar from all sides of the Lennigen valley and has close ties with the population. The industrial development generated by the foun-dation of the paper mill in 1855 brought work and sought-after prosperity to the narrow Lenningen valley.
