RED DRAGON FLAGMAKERS
We are a sewing business, a manufacturer, a social mission enterprise and a forward thinking dynamic product design company.
We are the only social mission flagmaker in the World and we make custom flags, banners, bunting and more every day in our Swansea valley workshop. We are part of a thriving and growing sector of innovative Valley businesses here in Wales, actively pushing the boundaries to get people of every background skilled up and into work. Talking and walking the walk.
We are exclusive flagmaker to the Human Rights 2019 event led by Amnesty International, we made the flags for the 2014 NATO Summit through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and we make all the ceremonial taffeta stitched banners for Effat University in Saudi.
We make one off coat of arms and the smallest of burgees for clients, wedding banners, installations for European galleries and we also print quality one-off flags for sports fans, events and bulk orders.
All our profits go into the amazing people we train and help get back on their feet in the local community and economy. There are nine of us full time and we've trained and helped rehabilitate over 300 people during the past six years of trading (all unpaid, all on our own time and all as part of our social mission).
We are an award winning Disability Confident and Living Wage employer and we are 100% reliant on sales revenue. We are not grant reliant and we are not a public sector business. We are an SE100 listed company, a member of the Flag Institute and the Wales Quality Centre and we are a thriving micro manufacturing business.
High value manufacturing
High value manufacturers have strong financial performance, are strategically important, and have positive social impact and manufacturing has evolved to turning ideas into products and services.
In today’s globally competitive landscape manufacturers are inventors, innovators, global supply chain managers and service providers. What was once seen just as production is now production, research, design, and service provision and social value - value which goes beyond its financial performance and includes social impact and strategic importance to the regional and national economy.
Red Dragon Flagmakers does all of the above and believes in doing it well as a collective process.
'Do one thing well' (and make SCRUBS!).
