Pictures asked for exhibition about industrialisation of Wijchen

Go Back

With five business areas industry in Wijchen is visible all throughout the municipality . Who does not know companies like Eromes, Nooteboom, Modderkolk, Vergeest, Martens, De Kleijn and many others. Mid twentieth century the situation in Wijchen was completely different from the current one.

The exbition will show how Wijchen developed from a small agricultural village to a village with (inter)national operating companies. Quite a number of the companies in Wijchen will show how they evolved and what they are making today. And how was it like to be working at these companies?

Especially to be able to show this last aspect in the exhibition we are looking for pictures of people who have worked at companies in Wijchen in the period before World War II and in the period from the fifties upto the eighties from the last century.

Have you or your parents or other familiy members worked at companies in Wijchen during these periodes and do you have pictures of this? Please, contact Museum Castle Wijchen, telephone 024 64 24 744 or e-mail
