The Widmann Paper Machinery Factory in Leintal in Neckargartach was a machine factory founded by Johann Jakob Widmann. Widmann had built the first continental European paper machine during the industrialization and produced it in a workshop in Heilbronn until 1840 before acquiring the premises in Leintal and building a new factory there. The plant also has remains of a workshop building, which, after Widmann's bankruptcy, continues to be used as a paper mill, converted to a pump plant around 1900 and used as such until the 1960s. In the second half of the 1990s, the complex was renovated and supplemented by a historic hammer forge. The property is now the historical industrial park Neckargartach.
