Newton Aycliffe-based flag and flagpole manufacturer Harrison Flagpoles has invested £70,000 in a new ultra-high-speed textile printer to further enhance its flag production capabilities.
The company has acquired a Dgen Telios Hexa G5 printer to drive its future growth plans by increasing both the speed and quality of flag production for its corporate and consumer customer base.
Founded in 1987, Harrison Flagpoles operates nationally and internationally from its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Newton Aycliffe. The company serves the construction, housebuilding, automotive, retail, hospitality, leisure and public sectors.
Commenting on the investment, Harrison Flagpoles sales and marketing director, Anthony Leonard, said: “We always planned to gear up for further growth and, now that lockdown restrictions have been eased, our new printer has arrived at the optimum time as demand for our flags increases.
“The investment demonstrates our continued commitment to delivering the highest quality flag and flagpole products for our customers. The new printer increases our capacity, further enhances the quality of our flags and significantly reduces lead times for our customers. In addition, it is able to print on a variety of textile materials utilising six colours, which means we can offer a greater range of flag options.”
Harrison Flagpoles employs 30 people. The company’s clients include housebuilders Redrow and Taylor Wimpey, energy drinks brand Red Bull, motor dealership group Stellantis and the Ministry of Defence.
Harrison Flagpoles has also supplied flags, flagpoles and rollout banner branding for Horse Guards Parade and the Mall, the London Marathon, Edinburgh Castle and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead.
