Hi DJ, I am pretty sure you know why, but if not, Serpent is in deep sh!t. The just let all their personell in Holland go, the only people left are Michael, Ronald and one other guy. Even Renee Cornella is gone. Great thing is, that they helped all their former employees to find other jobs in the industry, so it seems no one is unemployed.

Further, Serpent USA needed financial aid from Serpent HQ in the past and they were anything but quick with the pay back, which got Serpent on the brink of bankruptcy.

All of their production has been moved to Asia now and they are really struggling at the moment, so I guess, there was simply no budget for the worlds.

Stefan, you know these things as a fact? Very shocking if it true!

All the companies have their ups and downs. Due to economy, they were forced to do this. I believe they downsided so they could expand later after their move to Asia. Only a matter of time, hopefully they will get back on their feet in the near future.

I think it is foolish to assume that any manufacture is doing good or bad in the current economy. These types of post do not help the image. I think Companies make moves to try and better a sutuation and that appears to be what Serpent is doing. Yes I am a Serpent driver, however I will not pretent to know the facts. I make assumption just like the rest. I think things are going to be better, since now they are alligning themselves similar to their competition. This only makes for better business and better customer support in the very near future. They did not go the Worlds for this very reason. Michael stayed back to help get everything completed as fast as possible. They are making this transition as smooth as possible so that the costumer will not even notice.
