We're actually flagmakers! - a micro manufacturing business located in a little industrial estate in Clydach, South Wales specialising in the production of flags for films, TV and festivals, castles, regiments and more. Click HERE to find out more.
As with so many businesses since March 2020, our order book for festivals and events has been decimated by the Covid 19 pandemic, so we have diversified to firstly survive and secondly to contribute to the war-like effort to help those who help all of us.
In March 2020 we were asked by Welsh Government to diversify our production over to the manufacture of quality scrubs to help the Covid19 corona virus pandemic 'war effort' and their goal to get suitable apparel out to front line health and care workers. We jumped at the chance to help and started production within a week of receiving the call.
The urgent need from Government for scrubs has now passed but we continue to make to order with lead time of 7-14 days which remains very competitive market wise - we understand that the main contractor has a seven week back log.
In the meantime, we also set up our SCRUBS FOR ALL fundraiser which raised c.£8,000 to pay towards red fabric and materials needed to make thousands of scrubs tunics and trousers which were then DONATED out to care home workers, NHS health and community health workers in Wales and the UK. Our wonderful staff and 25 or so local volunteers - many of whom were on furlough - banded together to cut, make and produce the scrubs
