The activity of our main Denizen factory and the new one that was about to open up its doors before the flood in Bangkok has halted our new production.
We apologize to all our retailers and distributors for the delay. We will keep informing you with tthe improvement. We have purchased in excess of $87,000 of sandbags between both factories to save our expensive Swiss and German machinery and precious metal bullio .
We hope life will resume normally at the end of November. I have taken some photos while I was personally there with our staff to show you the level of disaster and our production activity came to a complete stop to face one adversary: flood at our doors.
Thank you for your understanding and thank you for your support. Our other distribution activities have been slightly affect due to reaffecting most staff in other branches to the factory. We kindly ask you be patient and understanding with us for 15 to 20 more days until we can have a normal activity and clean up the mess left after the flood.
No words can express the nightmare we went through during the unprecedented flood of October to mid November 2011 in Bangkok.
Our gratitude goes first to all our dedicated employees who helped save our factory with minimal damage and then our thanks to all our customers who patiently have composed with this unforeseen act of god that took all our resources to save our working tools and buildings.
Looking back at the first photo after the initial preparation, in our wildest dreams, we never thought water would rise above 5 in (15cm), little did we know it would reach 7ft (210cm) at the peek of the flood.
Thanks to Marc here ferrying employees from their homes to come to man factory relaying others to protect, clean up and monitor the pumps doing an outstanding job
WE POMPED ALL WATER OUT. SEE THE FIRST PICTURE HOW LOW WERE THE SAND BAGS INITIALLY BEFORE THE EN VOGUE US TEAM ARRIVED IN BANGKOK BRINGING ALONG REAL RAFTS, POWERFUL PUMPS AND PIPES TO HELP EVACUATE THE RISING WATERS 24/24 MEANWHILE THE FLOOD IS OVER 5FT HIGH JUST OUTSIDE OUR GATE. UNBELIEVABLE! THANK YOU THANK YOU BANGKOK TEAM FOR YOUR SACRIFICE TO HELP SAVE OUR WORKPLACE.
THANKS TO THE ARRIVAL OF OUR EN VOGUE TEAM FROM THE U.S. AND ST MAARTEN THAT BROUGHT SUPER POWERFUL PUMPS WITH THEM TO HELP THEIR LOCAL THAI COLLEAGUES FIGHT RISING WATERS YOU CAN SEE IN OUR PARKING. WE WON THE BATTLE AND HOPEFULLY THE WAR AGAINST THIS DISASTROUS FLOOD THAT DEVASTED THIS BRAVE NATION. WE ARE HAPPY TO TAKE A BREAK AND SMILE. THE WATER IS OUT OF THE BUILDINGS. OUR MACHINERY IS SAVED AND OUR PRECIOUS METAL BULLION SAFELY PROTECTED.
WE ARE LOSING THE BATTLE INSIDE THE FACTOY. WE JUST DO NOT HAVE THE SUFFICIENT PUMP POWER. NOTHING AVAILABLE IN ALL BANGKOK. WE HAVE TO HOLD ON UNTIL THE U.S. EN VOGUE STAFF BRINGS ALL THE NECESSARY HARDWARE AND TOOLS TO FACE THIS UNFORESEEN CATACLYSM.
WATER IS ALREADY AT THIGH LEVEL. SOME EMPLOYEES ARE MOVED OUT IN RAFTS MADE OF WHAT WE COULD FIND IN OUR FACTORY
BRINGING SANDBAGS HAS BECOME A 24H/24 ROUND THE CLOCK CHAIN OPERATION TO SAVE WHAT CAN BE SALVAGED AT THE EN VOGUE DENIZEN FACTORY. THE WORD IS NOT TO LET THE RISE OF WATER DEMORALIZES US AS IT SEEMS A LOST CASE WITH HARDLY NO PUMPS, NO FILTER, NO FLEXIBLE PIPE LONG ENOUGH AND ABOVE ALL RAFTS TO MOVE DOCUMENTS, PERSONNEL AND FOOD IN A 'DRY MANNER'.
WATER IS RISING AT ALMOST KNEE LEVEL ON THE 2ND DAY AND THERE IS NO STOPPING IN SIGHT
EVEN THE NEW FACTORY THAT HAS NOT OPENED ITS DOORS IS AFFECTED BUT NO MACHINERY INSIDE WHICH MAKES OF A LESSER PRIORITY FOR THE TIME BEING.
UNBELIEVABLE LEVELS OF WATER RISING BY THE MINUTE
WE ARE LOSING THE BATTLE SEEMINGLY WATER IS INSIDE
WATER IS INSIDE THE FACTORY
THE MUCH ANTICIPATED WATER IS ON US BEFORE WE COULD FINISH BUILDING THE DYKES
PREPARATION IN ANTICIPATION OF FLOOD FORECASTED TO ARRIVE TOMORROW
