SÜLZLE STAHL Ehrenfriedersdorf supports the “Frohnauer Hammer” museum
Donation on the occasion of the 140th company anniversary of the SÜLZLE Group
As part of the company’s 140th anniversary, SÜLZLE STAHL Ehrenfriedersdorf donates 1,400 euros to the “Frohnauer Hammer” museum, one of the most important components of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Montanregion Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří”. It is one of the best-known destinations and sights in the Ore Mountains and has been the oldest blacksmith museum in Germany since 1910, originating from a flour mill built in the Middle Ages. In 1621 it was converted into a hammer mill. Tools for mining and agriculture were made here until 1904. Visitors can see the fully functional hammer mill with water power drive from the 17th century in action and visit the living quarters of the former hammer masters in the manor house. The donation will be used to replace a broken cogwheel due to weather and age, so that the attached water wheel can do its work again. Those responsible would be delighted if the waterwheel were running again for the 400th anniversary of the Frohnau Hammer in August 2021. On behalf of SÜLZLE STAHL Ehrenfriedersdorf, Plant Manager Alexander Schröter handed over the donation cheque to the representatives of the museum.
