All kinds of uniform fabrics were fashioned from wool in the Pritzwalk cloth factory. Uniforms were produced for the military, but also for the railways, the post office, officials and for anyone else who performed their work in a uniform in Prussia of old. In 1839, the brothers Ludwig and August Dräger took over their father’s weaving mill and turned it into a cloth factory in which they installed Pritzwald's first steam machine. Demand for durable fabrics, especially from the military, enabled the factory to grow. They finally moved to the site on the River Dömnitz.

In 1883, the former Procurist Emil Quandt bought into the company and gradually acquired more and more shares in the company. After Emil, Günther Quandt took over the business, then came his son Herbert Quandt, whose heirs were his third wife Johanna Quandt and the two youngest children Susanne Klatten and Stefan Quandt. The Quandts, who originated in Pritzwalk, grew to become one of the largest family businesses in Germany.

Between 1936 and 1938, the Quandts build a new administrative building with a prestigious clinker façade for their cloth factory. At the end of the Second World War and the expropriation of the Quants, the administration of the GDR district of Pritzwalk moved into the building. The building was initially unused following the re-establishment of the district of Prignitz with Perleberg as its capital in 1990.

Now a thorough renovation has breathed new life into the building. The Pritzwalk Educational Society has it as its headquarters seminar and boarding rooms, workshops and lecture halls. The Quandt family has made generous donations to this society.
