The Wehrmacht's armaments office maintained a directory of businesses and factories doing war work, each identified by a unique code. The directory listed 127 separate businesses or manufacturers in Dresden working for the Wehrmacht. There were probably many more in Dresden since the directory did not include many component and part manufacturers.
