Watermark Designs Helps Brooklynites Affected by Hurricane Sandy

November 15, 2012

Watermark Designs, a Brooklyn-based manufacturer, is reaching out to help local residents affected by Hurricane Sandy. Beginning November 15, 2012, for six months, the company will donate 5 percent of sales of its Brooklyn faucet collection to the Brooklyn Community Foundation organization.

“Like every other family and business in the Brooklyn area, we were affected by Sandy,” said Avi Abel, general manager of Watermark Designs and a lifelong Brooklyn resident. “Our factory was closed for several days and our employees, who are our family, were also affected. Once we had our factory up and running and made sure our employees safety was assured, we began thinking about how we could help others in and around the community, and this seemed like the least we could do.”

“Being from Brooklyn myself, I feel rooted in Brooklyn’s culture and seeing the effects of this storm, I felt compelled to heed the efforts and assist others,” said Jody Rosenberg, president, sales and marketing. “This hurricane left so many without power and homes, we feel lucky to have come out as unscathed as we have and we know the clean-up will take many months, which is why we feel so strongly about helping out.”

Designed in collaboration with Incorporated Architecture & Design, Watermark Designs’ Brooklyn faucet is manufactured entirely in its namesake borough. The fitting is inspired by mid-century gate valves and garden hoses found throughout New York City. Click here to learn more.
