The company did not work directly for the Wehrmacht but supplied bottle rinsing machines, washing machines and fitted bolts for locomotives to private German companies. Several people, around 8 or 10, forced entry into the company and threatened the factory manager and two sabotage guards who were then forced to walk out onto the street. While some of the saboteurs took care of these three people, others collected the six workers and forced them to leave the factory. Shortly after, an explosion could be heard from inside the building. No one was physically injured in the blast, but several ambulances had to be called to take some of the company's shocked neighbours to the hospital.
