Britain is making a slow and steady economic recovery from triple-dip recession, with home-grown production rising by 1.1% and manufacturing increasing by 1.9 per cent, (Office for National Statistics, 06 August 2013)
Harrison Flagpoles provide leading companies in key economy-building industries with attractive and widely recognisable display systems, such as flags, flagpoles and banners. The automotive industry has boasted one of the biggest growths, helping the country’s recovery come quicker than expected as the transport sector boasts an increase in productivity. Harrison’s are proud to be one of the driving forces behind some of the UK’s forecourt marketing efforts and the important aesthetics of their premises.
Harrison Flagpoles, as a British manufacturer and supplier to all types of institutions and industries, have also seen a marked improvement in demand correlating to that of its customers, leading to an increase in production and profitability. Another industry making great strides in recovery so far in 2013 is housing development, with Taylor Wimpey showing over 11% increase (Taylor Wimpey, 31 July 2013) in revenue in the first half of 2013 compared to 2012. Redrow is another of the UK’s leading residential property developers, whose shares have risen sharply throughout 2013 (Redrow Homes Plc, August 2013) after an impressive few months of development and construction.
Harrison Flagpoles is a proud supplier of flags and flagpoles to Taylor Wimpey and Redrow Homes in an effort to improve the exposure and attractiveness of their show homes and current constructions and market their properties.
Harrison Flagpoles also provided the London 2012 summer Olympic Games with flags and flagpoles, which, along with the birth of the Royal baby, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Andy Murray being the first British man to win Wimbledon for 77 years, has probably been the cause leading to Britons being more happy and less anxious,(The Independent 30 July 2013) the official life satisfaction survey revealed, as well giving the economy a huge boost and, importantly, instilling a great sense of national pride in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland by seeing the fluttering Union Flag on every corner.
Andrew Hobson, Managing Director of Harrison External Display Systems, the UK’s leading Flagpole and Flag manufacturer, said: “We are delighted that British businesses have started to see a turnaround in fortune after a few difficult years.

It is one of our prime objectives to promote British skill, and keep British people employed, which is why we are always happy to work alongside British companies to help encourage a healthy work ethic and help other businesses succeed by providing them with excellent marketing materials. Of course, Harrison Flagpoles also supply an enormous range of bespoke flags, flagpoles and banners around the world to help promote production, manufacturing and a sense of national pride in any country.”
