I created this table hoping to establish the sequence and timing of the name and ownership changes concerning the Gladenbeck foundry. As it turned out, the information provided by Berman is too imprecise, too inconsistent, and probably too inaccurate to allow any conclusions. Fortunately, as I discovered shortly thereafter, the history of Gladenbeck has been documented in some detail by by Berger (1988), Nummert (1998), Sprink (2002), Schmidt (2003) and --see the Gladenbeck section.
