During the early years of the Republic of Turkey, met an important need for industrial factories.  Kayseri 'Sümer' fabric factory in 1935, was established with technical support from Russia. These initiatives, national industrial locomotives became a kind of time. Over time, these factories were not renewed or developed, became bulky and not profitable. Eventually, have completed their economic lives. Politicians, one by one across the country closed down these organizations which become cumbersome. Governments decided to close them gradually to avoid further financial burden. Some were suddenly shut down. Even if the workers do not take their private belongings. These factories, which were opened with great enthusiasm in the first years of the Republic, were left with a view full of old model machines and production residues. In addition, many technical notes from engineers and workers, work aprons, personal belongings were documented as if time was frozen from the last working day.
