מפעל לטבק
המבנה הזה הוא שריד מבסיס התחזוקה של חיל האוויר הבריטי, שפעל כאן בשנות ה-40 של המאה העשרים. המבנה עמד על תוואי של דרך ראשית, שעברה בין המחסנים הגדולים של המחנה. סמוך לו ניצב בעבר מגדל שמירה.

בראשית שנות ה-50, הקימו האחים ישראל, שלום, סימון, שלמה וחיים לבית משרקי במבנה מפעל לטבק בשם "חברת טבק פיל בע"מ". משפחת משרקי, שעסקה גם בצנעא בייצור טבק, עלתה לארץ בשנת 1949 והשתכנה ברמת עמידר.

מאז הקמתו, המפעל הוא בבעלות המשפחה, ובו ממשיכים לייצר טבק לפה, להרחה ולנרגילה. עלי הטבק, המיובאים מהודו, עוברים כאן תהליך של ייבוש. לאחר מכן הם נטחנים או נגרסים ואחר כך נארזים. מוצרי המפעל נמכרים, בעיקר, לבעלי חנויות מכל רחבי הארץ.

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.
