Hello, welcome to our most profiting part of our city, except for the tourists (That's you!).
This is our business district, another older part of the city.
We start our tour today with one of the pioneers of Kennemerburgh industry: Fish-Inc.
About this creation
Hello ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Fish-Inc. I'm your host, Terrance "Doog" Mc... Wait, that's copyrighted... Just call me Alex then.
Well, after a little "conversation" with the LIU we can proceed our tour. As you can see, there are two buildings here at the Fish-Inc site. The Factory and our shipyard.
The shipyard (To the left) was built in 1879, and was the beginning of the industry here in Kennemerburg. To the right you can see the Factory. It's here where my grandfather founded a fish factory in 1907. Back then they only produced fishdicks uhhm.. sticks. Later on the factory expanded and he bought the shipyard next to it.
First it's time for a closer look at the factory, you see the white part at the bottom? It was the original factory built in 1907, all the yellow parts are the 1932 expansion.
To get the fish to the factory we have a small fleet of 3 ships. This crane here is loading fish out of our oldest boat: "De Jonckheer Visch". Oh yeah sorry, I forgot to mention this is a Dutch city so all things have Dutch names.
Our fish get loaded into these crates and loaded onto the dock.
Our employees put the fish in transportation crates and bring them to the factory.
From there our dear little fishies get transported into the factory...
So, let's get in ourselves. Watch your head, in 1907 people were a lot smaller...
The fish come in here and get loaded onto the conveyor belt by our newest employee. It's something that easy even he can't screw up....
Then the fish go to our semi automatic separator,our newest addition to the factory, it basically sorts the good fish from the bad. It's controlled by Sam, one of the top class employees. He must keep an eye on the machine and select the fish we need to keep. This is necessary because customers will complain if they find tuna between their salmon...
This is our most important part of the factory, here, the fish are cleaned and put into cans or fishsticks (I said it correctly now).
Let's go to our shipyard, here we build and repair our ships. Oh no, riots again! Lucky there's a police officer.
Parts for our ships are being transported with our new forklift truck. Employees were complaining about heavy lifting...
This is the inside, parts are stocked here. These parts here are all aluminum.
This is a small fishing boat we are adding to our fleet soon, to catch fish on rivers too. Now we only breed riverfish and catch seafish.
Here the wooden base is being made waterproof. It's really time consuming, so boats are really expensive to produce.
Here's one of our fishing boats, now on repair. Half the top of this boat was lost in a storm, as well as half of the crew and even worse, half of the fish...
Now we are building a new aluminum construction on the boat, which will certainly last longer than our old firewood construction.
That was it for today, next time we have even better things to show!
P.S. Did you know I mentioned the word fish 23 times!
