Malars

Historia:

Foundation: 1827

Evolution:

It was one of the first factories in the region. In 1827, Gaspar Molas requested a new concession to increase the production of cotton. In 1837 the facilities were burned down by Carlist Tristany. The factory was then rehabilitated and consisted of 2 buildings and some houses with hydraulic powered machinery using wooden wheels. Decades later, turbines were used. There is a date on the threshold of a door in 1780, possibly indicating the founding of the old flour and drapery mill. In 1996 it was bought by the Serra de Banyoles brothers for 46 million at auction.

At the moment:

It is currently closed and abandoned with roads to rehabilitate it in a museum.

Type of company: Familiar.

Number of workers: There were 25 houses for the workers, but i don’t know the exact number.

Projection: A reform is waiting for it to be converted into a museum.
