    I'll check tomorrow and see if I can clear it up.
    I corrected both of my post due to improper information.

    The radoms were produced at the Radomiu plant in Poland until the advancing Russians forced production to be moved to Steyr Werke in 1945.

    Rescue190,
    According to York's VIS-35 book (p.40), barrel production and final assembly of the parts was done at Steyr. Starting in 1944, further production was performed at Gusen and probably other satellite camps of Mathausen concentration camp. The increasing reach of Allied air power forced a relocation to other camps in the greater Steyr area and to Znaim in Czechoslovakia.

    That's a summary, but it gets the point across.

    Best,
    Pat
