the Power of a Buying Group

the Power of FLAG

"Making our Members and Vendors stronger companies."

Who is FLAG

Flexo Label Advantage Group LLC was founded in January 2010 by John McKay. Previous to FLAG, John spent twenty five years with the Pitman Company in Sales, Management & as Strategic Development Manager in the National Account Division. Seeing an opportunity in the North America label market for a buying group and knowing that buying groups in other printing industry segments were very successful for Members & Vendors, as personally experienced, FLAG was born.

Buying Group Savings

FLAG negotiates national vendor contracts, leveraging the buying power of all its label converter Members. Group savings incentives deliver bottom line savings to Members, who still maintain independence. FLAG national contracts provide significant sales opportunities for its valued World Class Vendor Partners.

Catastrophic Recovery

FLAG Members can rely on each other when catastrophic emergencies strike. The ability to receive help from other FLAG Members you know and trust while in recovery, can provide comfort to you, your customers, and potential prospects. Our FLAG national recovery vendor provides emergency infrastructure support opportunities that most single locations find cost prohibitive.

New Markets

FLAG Members have proven opportunities for new top line label sales growth from within the group. This includes Member to Member overload work, unique technology capabilities, and new prospect connections with FLAG Strategic Alliance Partners.

New Resources

As part of a larger group, FLAG Members realize the benefit many large multisite converters already experience from vendors and "sister" locations, products & services which many single sites won't qualify for. FLAG provides invaluable opportunities for education, interaction and networking with other converter peer Members, Vendors, and Strategic Partners.
