"Tourism Revolution Logo" Tobacco factory
This structure is a remnant of the maintenance base of the British Air Force, which operated here in the 1940s. The building stood on the route of a main road, which passed between the large warehouses of the camp. Next to it once stood a guard tower.
In the early 1950s, the brothers Israel, Shalom, Simon, Shlomo and Chaim from the Mashraki family established a tobacco factory called "Tobacco Elephant Company Ltd."
The Mashraki family, who also engaged in tobacco production in Sanaa, immigrated to Israel in 1949 and settled in Ramat Amidar.
Since its inception, the factory has been owned by the family, and continues to produce tobacco for mouth, sniffing and hookah. The tobacco leaves, imported from India, undergo a process of drying here. They are then ground or crushed and then packaged. The factory products are sold, mainly, to store owners from all over the country.
