The last Press I am stripping out to move from a plant we have to close, a sad day indeed :-( It will end up in a third world country where it will make parts cheaper than the western health and safety mad world and end up with more factories like this closing their doors forever. this press weighs in at 70 tonne
Yeah I hate that our industry has to move out because of investors want more profit and cheaper labor and not care about the safety of its workers. Its like that in America and people are to dumb to point the finger and see the truth. We let this happen friend because its easier to watch a reality game show. great work and dam good statement. You are doing the right thing with your camera. That's telling the truth so people can see.'Cheers
in german we have an expression that's closely related to what you show us here: "zum alten eisen gehören". if one "belongs to the old iron", he's no longer interested or actively participating in life – an outsider for whom society has no use. in fact, this cumbersome old machine is – quite literally! – "old iron"! greetings, sabine. p.s.: the giant cogwheels look very imPRESSive indeed! ; ))
Good crop of this surely impressive machine !
Sad times for the workers who have lost their jobs.
How will the future look like for our children in Europe during the coming decades ? I often wonder.......
a sad day indeed bryan.
so much history and heritage being washed away on a tide of complacency.
mono is the perfect choice for this incredible machine.
they don't build them like they used to, as they say.
At last, it has something to do again. Hope also the people who became jobless :-(( , find a job again.
Very nice and detailed capture of this giant machine.
The B & W mood demonstrates it's experience better to us.
Best regards from Persia,
What a sad story indeed Bryan. Health and safety does over take everything sometimes including common sense. This is an impressive bit of kit though. 70 tonne, that is incredible, great in b/w too.
one day that bubble will burst too buddy, probably not tomorrow or the day after, already nowadays China's growth is getting smaller and smaller by the year...
excellent docu shot where b & w suits very well !!
Hi Bryan *** this is the same problem here. With all the regulations and levies and union demands we are just not competitive any more, jobs going where people working for a dollar a day and our workforce going on unemployment benefits. The Photo is a strong document and by the way a very good one.
