The Widmann’s paper machine factory in the Leintal in Neckargartach was a machine factory founded by Johann Jakob Widmann. Widmann had built the first continental European paper machine during the onset of industrialization and produced in a workshop in Heilbronn until 1840 before he acquired the site in the Leintal and built a new factory there. Remains of a workshop building are still preserved from the system, which according to Widmann's bankruptcy continued as a paper mill, converted into a pumping station in 1900 and used as such until the 1960s. In the second half of the 1990s, the facility was renovated and a historic hammer smithy was supplemented. The property today forms the historic Neckargartach industrial park.
