A factor of a Prague firm Leopold Abeles came to the townlet. Abeles began his own factory enterprise – he built a warehouse, starch factory, drying chamber and mangle soon followed by a mechanical cotton-spinning work room. With Abeles, the cotton came to the town and pushed the linen production definitely aside to the second position. The modern spinning mill was built in 1873. It employed 300 weavers and for Abeles worked another 600 local ones. To the profile of the textile production in Kostelec added a fabric dying as well. The first dyer began in 1837; forty years later, there were 16 dye-houses. In 1860 the firm just, started operation. Since 1864, it fully concentrated on dyeing and modifying the fabric. For Kostelec began acompletely new phase of its development. It quickly changed into an industrial centre.. Leopold Abeles se ubytoval v domě čp.108. Ten dům on nekoupil, ale pouze tam bydlel. Potom koupil dům čp.183 a to byl základ jeho budoucí továrny. Továrnu rozšiřoval a unikátem ve své době bylo postavení tkalcovny odlité z železobetonu. Lidé té budově říkali "vysokostavba" nebo také "mrakodrap". Leopold also bought a small factory in Česká Třebová from Mr. Matysek in abt. 1849, expanded it and in 1882 sold it to Vienna firm HPS - Hermann Pollack’s Söhne, owned by brothers Leopold a Bedřich Pollack
