    It used to be the biggest employer in the city of Herent (214 employees). In 2002 Henkel decided to close down this detergent-factory. It was a hard surprise for most because it came totally unexpected.

    Since 2002 it has been standing empty. At first it was used by local youth as a rollerskating terrain, but some 'dangerous' people moved in according to the neighbours (they saw light at night.. well once!). So the police and a guard company were put on it. Still it was not enough for the neighbours so the city decided that while the new owners didn't start with their renovation, local clubs could use it. Today it is used by a theater group, an exposition hall is being made,...

     Future Plans
    Within the next 4 years the owner will renovate it so the buildings will be used for +/- 200 apartments, small offices and shops.
