Factory "Red Triangle" - hardcore St.Pete
• The factory "Red Triangle" - hardcore St.Pete
Once it was the first in Russia factory of rubber products, and today is one of the oldest industrial enterprises of St. Petersburg. At one time the plant was a real monster for the production of rubber overshoes, competition which does not withstand even the British company "Mackintosh", which built its plant there and then sell it after eight years of work.
Today it is a huge size is actually an abandoned factory with a lot of gloomy streets, dead ends and ... removing the premises of various companies here, signs of which are making a real dissonance in the surrounding reality.
Among these dark sooty walls and broken windows, you can see signs of wholesale shops of Italian fashion clothing, buy animal feed or "everything for your bathroom" and meet maneuvers between caved Bentley designs ...
The factory "Red Triangle", formerly specializing on production of rubber products, is located on the Bypass channel embankment in St. Petersburg. A huge red brick building with broken windows stretched along the waterfront for many hundreds of meters. But once it was a real industrial monster.
Its history began in 1859, when arrived in St. Petersburg businessman Krauzkopf Ferdinand, decided to establish a factory of rubber products in Russia, which was supposed to bring high profits. The plant was built quickly, called it "Triangle" and then immediately went full speed. It produces a variety of rubber products - pulleys and belts, pump sleeves, and, of course, rubber overshoes. Soon, the factory started to export their products, and not only the whole of Russia, but also the whole of Europe went to the St. Petersburg company galoshes.
Interesting explanation for the choice of name. It corresponded to trademarks. As explained Ferdinand Krauzkopf, in the triangle of the company sign - main, a conspicuous illiterate buyer. The basic principles of modern branding and worked in the 19th century.
Red "Triangle" was renamed after the revolution in honor of the fifth anniversary of October.
rapid plant growth continued during the Soviet period. Leading experts were sent on missions to Europe and the US to develop a foreign experience. Introducing new processes, their technical re-occurred. And inspired by the plan of reconstruction of the country after the victory in the Great Patriotic War, people are enthusiastically looking for internal reserves to fulfill ambitious goals. A huge army of inventors, innovators and innovators filed thousands of innovations.
Apogee Soviet galoshes came in the 50-60s: produces men's, women's, boys ', girls' and children's boots and galoshes; with strap and without; type sandals and chuni. But soon the rubber shoes out of fashion and began to settle in stores and warehouses. "Triangle" surrendered its leading position and market reforms 90 brought the already weak the company to inevitable bankruptcy. sales team boarded boards, workers returned to their homes, and the factory began to turn into the crumbling brick monster, on whose territory we can safely make films about the war - for this there are all conditions - the whole dilapidated quarters and workshops.
We will begin a tour of the area. Landscapes are just marvelous.
At present, part of the premises leased under various production, warehouses, wholesale shops and offices. According to people who are working on weekdays parking on site clogged.
