SPARED THE
BOMBARDMENT

The Rotax plant escapes Allied attacks

PRODUCTION PLANNING ELIMINATED

Bombardment becomes more frequent, especially in the last months of the war, including in the Wels region due to the industrial operations located there and their importance for the war effort; bombings increase and infrastructure is damaged. The destruction of the station and therefore one of the key delivery routes for products impacts the entire region. Production has to be halted again and again – production planning is well-nigh impossible, even though raw material supplies have been given the highest priority by the Rüstungskommando.
