No, or at least I don't think so. See the link below.

Thanks.

My last question was rather rhetorical because I know that they have been produced there (I know a guy who has been working there as a prisoner of the German concentration and work camps)...

I have already read really many things (books, publications etc.) about Me-262 but I haven't found anything about Schneidemühl. Do you have any idea why??? I know that between 1944 and 1945 there were at least 30 Me-262s built there (maybe that were Me's No. 110431 to 110465???).

Mateusz can You plz tell me sth more about this guy? Why are you so sure that it is true if there is no proof about production of Me-262 in Pila (Schneidemuhl). I live here and I`m looking for any clues about this subject (Detlef, underground tunels under our airfield etc).
Are You from Pila too? Can u PM me on mail plz?

According to the Messerschmitt Me-262 Production Log by Dan O'Connell, the sequence 110431 to 110465 is missing from the record. You may have a significant find here. You may wish to check local records or with the Deutsches Museum.

According to the website Weapons and Warfare:
The town of Schneidemuhl had 45000 inhabitants in January 1945.It was an important crossroad and railway center, so it was chosen by Hitler to be a “Strongpoint” (Wellenbrecher). There were two military airfields and the important Albatros Werke who fabricated parts for ME 262 jets. It’s unlikely that there were jets stationed on the airfields for that area was under responsibility of Luftflotte 6 and they had no jets.
In other words, some components for Me 262s were made by the Albatros Werke in Schneidemuhl.
