The carriage factory founded by Podeus in 1893 delivered carriages and rail cars around the world. The business became part of Eisenbahn-Verkehrsmittel AG in 1917 and ceased production in 1944 due to the war. The Wismar businessman Heinrich Podeus (1832 – 1905) had a significant influence on the economy in Mecklenburg. He and his sons promoted industrialisation in Wismar through pioneering work. In his machine works, which were taken over in 1879, cars were sometimes built as well as agricultural machines.
