Geocache Description:

 Zasulauka Manufaktūra

[LV] Vieta ir ainaviska, bet nolaista. Līdzi var paņemt maizīti, pabarot pīles. Ir vērts apstaigāt apkārt fabrikas teritoriju, apskatoties 19. gadsimta beigu rūpniecības arhitektūru.

[ENG] A charming, but very neglected place. You can bring some bread with you, to feed the ducks. Could be interesting to walk around the entire factory territory to get familiar with the industrial architecture of the end of 19 century.

[LV] Zasulauka teritorijā atradās Zasulauka vērpšanas un aušanas manufaktūra. To dibināja 1885.gadā, bet tikai 1896.g. 16 janvārī kosmisija dod atļauju manufaktūrai sākt darbu. 1900 uzņēmumā strādāja 950 darbinieki, bet 1913 jau 1800 darbinieki. Uzņēmumā galvenokārt ražoja kokvilnijas dziju un audumus. 1915.g. manufaktūru evakuēja uz Krieviju. Pēc 1. pasules kara manufaktūru atjaunoja, bet moderno tehniku ieviesa tikai 1930.gadā. Modernais uzņēmums ražoja kokvilnas un linu dziju, palagu, spilvenu, pārvalku, aizkaru, galdautu un darba apģērba audumus. Uzņēmums nosaukumu maiņa laika gaitā: 1895.g.-1940.g.-Zasulauka kokvilnas vērptuves un austuves akciju sabiedrība; 1940.gadā uzņēmumu nacionalizē un nosauc par Zasulauka manufaktūru (1940-1944.g.), 1944.-1970 - Latvijas PSR Vieglās rūpniecības ministrija Tekstilkombināts "Zasuluka manufaktūra" 1970. 1975.g. - Latvijas PSR Vieglās rūpniecības minstrija Tekstilražošanas apvienība "Sarkanā tekstilniece" galvenais uzņēmums; 1975.-1991.g. - Rīgas kokvilnas ražošanas apvienība "Rīgas manufaktūra" 3. filiāle "Zasulauka manufaktūra"; 1991.-1993.g. Valsts uzņēmums "Rīgas manufaktūra" Tekstilfabrika "Zasulauka manufaktūra".

Pašreiz ēka un visa bijušās manufaktūras teritorija ar dīķi ir daļēji pamesta. Apbūves stūrī izvietots uzņēmums Ligija Teks, kā arī muitas noliktava).

--Par Slēpni: Slepnis ir PET pudeles sagatave ar viesugrāmatu, zīmuli un asināmo. Vislabākais laiks apciemot slēpni ir agri no rīta.

[ENG] Zasulauka spinning and weaving textiles was founded in 1885, but was allowed to start production only on january 16, 1896. In the year 1900 the factory had 950 working places. But in 1913 it housed already 1800 workers. The factory mainly produced cotton yarn and fabrics. In  the year 1915 concerning the threat of WWI the factory was evacuated to Russia. After WWI production was resumed, bot there was no modern equipment until the year 1930. Rerquipped factory manufactured cotton and linen yarn, fabrics for sheets, pillows, slipcovers, curtains, tableclothes, and workrobes. In the year 1940 the factory was nationalised by the Soviet government. Shut down in the year 1993.

Nowadays the territory and the pound is partially abandoned. Some companies are occupying parts of the territory.
