Clearly not in production, but parts of it are being cared for. (Though I would not want to eat at Gastro Oprema...)
If you pan out there is an 'Ei PCB Factory' very near by?
Yes i saw that PCB factory when looking round in streetview.
Looks like they declared bankruptcy in 2016, sad thing is they could have turned round their debt if they kept producing tubes and marketing them properly. it looked like they had been making attempts to restart production and they had registered the eitubes.com domain name which i was always checking for updates on the "watch this space" banner that was displayed.
Anyway, the factory looks like a rather sad state when you look round the back. I dont know what fate the rest of their business had, but they were producing medical equipment and the such not that long ago when i was looking.
Looks like these guys here Swisslion Group - Wikipedia
are using part of the complex now.
Upside is at least this machinery has been saved.
