Catastrophic flash floods have left thousands of people in western Germany without access to drinking water, electricity and gas over the past ten days.

The sheer intensity of the floods in Germany have shocked many who had not anticipated flood records to be broken as much as they have been.

There has been tens of thousands of homes and businesses flooded, with utilities and power supplies also disrupted.


Pangborn Germany Customers

Pangborn Germany customers have made an impressive effort to restart operations following the dramatic flooding in the Ruhr area in Germany ten days ago.


‘Today, as Managing Director of Pangborn Germany I visited a few of our customers to make sure they had the support they needed to get up and running and fully operational again.

It was Incredible to see the damage caused by the forces of nature, 1.5m high water and river sand-mud in the factory. The bridge over the stream to the company entrance completely devastated, the stream now seems again harmless.

With the impressive efforts by all, working 24/7 our customers continue trying to repair the damage. I have great respect for the hard-working teams at the companies I have visited over the past few days, that have tirelessly worked endlessly to return their business to normal operations’. 

Leonardus Van Der Weijden, Managing Director: Pangborn EMEA
