BARTLETT, Ill., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Flags USA Inc., one of the nation’s leading flag suppliers for 100% MADE IN THE USA flags, is pleased to announce that that they been awarded a GSA Schedule 78 contract (GS-03F-0162Y) and are now certified to provide goods and services to the Federal Government.

Acknowledging the growth in federal spending through the GSA, Flags USA Inc. has placed their line of flag products currently available on their contract on the government’s electronic ordering system, GSA Advantage!(®).
“As a Woman Owned Small Business, this schedule opens up significantly more markets throughout the country,” states Kimberly Sklarz, Marketing Director with Flags USA Inc. She continues: “Securing a GSA schedule expands our reach beyond the federal government to numerous state and municipal governments as we can now offer them our line of flag products at fixed government pricing.”
Flags USA Inc. prides itself in supplying only 100% American made flags to the Federal government. A newly mandated Buy American policy for the Armed Forces (H.R. 1344) will facilitate this process. “It’s amazing that our military personnel stationed overseas were purchasing flying flags that were not manufactured in the USA – we’re very pleased with the adoption of the All-American Flag Act and proud to supply American made flags to Americans, wherever they’re stationed,” adds Ms. Sklarz.
Flags USA’s standard American flags feature lock stitched construction as opposed to the lower cost and lower quality, chain stitching.
