Abandoned brick and tile factory [DK]

Author Urbex Clown - Last updated: 19.08.2012

A bit of history….

A new era in the concrete industry began in 1960 when Johannes Rosenkilde purchased a small cement foundry in Ikast. After only a few years the space was too cramped, which was the start of the first of many expansions over the years made ​​in Ikast.

IBF has grown over the years, both organically and through acquisitions. Mergers and the company’s acquisitions are usually done in the context of generational change as the industry has been dominated by family businesses. Many of these companies have over time been taken over by IBF, so that IBF is now nationwide. So far it has been possible, the companies have continued to be run by the previous owners/managers, although due to the slowdown in recent years, a few have closed and others merged.

Developments have included the product areas of drainage products (pipes, well chambers, separators, etc.), as well as curbs, tiles and paving stones, including specialty products, concrete roofing tiles and ready mixed concrete. This extension of the product range has made IBF a major and in particular, a stable player in the Danish construction industry.

This monster of a power station sits as one of three super stacks out in Toronto’s Portland. A big favourite of Toronto Explorers, and featured in several feature films, such as Silent Hill 2 and the latest Resident Evil film.

May 2013, visited with LarzzA very hot early summer’s day; somewhere in the industrial depths of Belgium. The furnace towers above us as we stake out the gate and notice way too much activity! This won’t be an easy task… We decide to check the back o…
