Continental Standard

In het Nederlands

Duitsland > BelgiŽ > Rusland

Tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog wordt de Continental-fabriek verplaatst naar het door de Duitsers bezette BelgiŽ. Omdat staal er tijdens en na de oorlog schaars is, zijn de nieuwe machines helaas ondermaats en hun kopers misnoegd. De zaakvoerders verdwijnen met de noorderzon. En de fabriek in het Duitse Chemnitz wordt ontmanteld (en mogelijk meegenomen) door de Russische bezetter. Zo valt het doek voor een ooit zo trots Europees merk.

Germany > Belgium > Russia

During the Second World War, the Continental factory is moved to occupied Belgium. As steel is scarce during and after the war, the new machines are, sadly, inferior and the buyers dissatisfied.

The business managers do a moonlight flit. The factory in Chemnitz in Germany is dismantled (and possibly carried off) by the Russian occupier. The curtain falls for a once proud European brand.
