From the above article:

"The company was founded in 1811 as a cloth factory but converted in 1883 on hat factory. The company manufactures hoods and hats in wool, hair and velour for men and women. In the modern factory rooms equipped with all the latest innovations, it is possible to produce up to 1,200 pairs of stumps per day which are further processed in a branch plant also located in Luckenwalde. In the field of export, the company has been active in the early days."

The factory building was designed by the famous architect Erich von Mendelsohn.

Some of the factory still stands today and is a protected monument. The following photos were taken during a recent renovation project (now completed).

STECO "Otter Velour" probably late 1930s. Unfortunately this hat was modified. The ribbon / bow was replaced and the brim was probably cut. Luckily I was able to find out that STECO was Friedrich Stienberg Herrmann & Co. Hutfabrik Luckenwalde (Germany). The "Otter Velour" was most likely STECO's answer to J. Hückel ´s Söhne's "Seal Velour". The Velour (finish, hand, color) and original components (liner and sweatband) are very high quality.
