The company was established on the basis of the former Russian-French partnership “Provodnik” (Conductor). Since 1890 production of technical and surgical rubber products, linoleum and products made of horny rubber, rubber overshoes was started. The factory was successful in USSR.
In 90’s of last century the plant, along with whole industry of Latvia survived the economic downturn. Idles took place due to lack of orders. A number of industries were closed due to unprofitability. Provodnik is abandoned place now.
I am creating my country’s historical projects to show how was changed our life and economy with time, sometimes not in a good way. It was unique that I could get inside this building with history of successful activities for over 100 year.
