Sugar House Urban Adventure Spot in Marijampolė

Every morning from my bedroom window I can see high tower – chimney of sugar house. It was founded in 1931 and was the first industrial object in the region. In Europe Sugar from sugar beetroots people started to get in nineteenth century.

During the war when Great Britain blocked all the water canals and Europeans couldn’t import sugarcane’s, so they found that adequate amount of sugar they can get from beets. From this time was started beet sugar production. Nowadays manufacturing process become completely automatic, productive capacity and output are huge. Our sugar house is a company, which belongs ARVI corporation, it creates almost two hundred work places.

I cant imagine my city without this industrial beast. I remember it since I remember my self :). This factory always works periodically: It’s starts working in fall and stops in late spring. During summer it’s production section is closed and factory is almost empty, except store and sales departments. So when I was a kid me and my friends use to sneak in to the closet factory and convert it to our playground, till the keeper banish us out :).
