the Steinbach paper-works, established on the Intermills site in Malmedy, was forced to close down due to the poor economic climate, after 150 years of industrial activity.
At the beginning of 2011, the Gehlen Group, a company very active in the region, was contacted by the official receiver administering the closure.
After analysing the site and estimating the work necessary, the group purchased the entire 8.5-hectare site with the aim of complete rehabilitation.
in cooperation with the Malmedy town authorities, the Walloon region and SPI. The work started in 2012.
The INTERMILLS Business & Event Centre came into being in 2014, on the site of the former factory’s offices. It enabled this former flagship of local industry to carry on the name, but also to breathe new life into it, whilst retaining its architectural assets.
In 2015, the Moviemills cinema was opened.
in late 2018, it was the turn of the western zone of the Intermills site to undergo renewal, with the construction of MY HOTEL, a 4-star establishment boasting 84 rooms, perfectly and indispensably complementing the various establishments already in place on the Intermills site.
MY HOTEL will open its doors during November 2019 !
