In development of the village, the industrial union "Gewerkschaft Brigitta" had the greatest share in 1934 by beginning oil production. "Brigitta" established an estate for industrial workers with bounteous sports facilities, a stadion with flood light and an indoor- as well as an outdoor swimming pool. In the meantime, the reduction of oil production has resulted to the abolishment of the pumpjacks that in former times have been Steimbke's landmark.
