The company produced fitted bolts for locomotives and bottle rinsers. Approximately 60% of production was going to Germany. Three to four armed men forced entry by arriving with the last worker on the night shift, and managed to let in approximately twenty additional men through the gate. Two explosive charges exploded in the machine shop on the ground floor. The German bomb disposal unit could subsequently remove another seventeen related, but unexploded explosive charges of approximately 1 kilo each. All of them had been planted on lathes and milling machines.
