SSM has restored an old factory and earns its money by helping people with removals and flat closures. It is involved with various beneficial projects within the local community and helps those in need. Only a few hundred metres from the SSM house, perfectly situated by the Rhine, a new project is currently under development: converting a disused warehouse into a second hand furniture store combined with workshops, a café and a room for activities.
