FLAGMORE US  was born when two leading flagpole companies, Atlantic Fiberglass Products and Fiberglass Flagpoles of America, both with decades of experience in the fiberglass industry, merged their activities.  This association brings together the best each company has developed over the years and offers the highest quality flagpoles available in the market.

Atlantic Fiberglass Products was originally the US arm of TidaFlag, a Swedish company which was later acquired by the Flagmore Group, a Scandinavian-owned flagpole and composite company.  Flagmore was established in 1931 and has been producing flagpoles since 1958.  It has a 45,000 annual production capacity with exports to all continents, and has been the supplier to many world events, one of the most recent being the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.

Fiberglass Flagpoles of America was the US subsidiary of Deschamps SA, a French fiberglass product manufacturer which began its activities in the mid-1950s.  Deschamps made a name for itself with its banner poles with a unique, patented internal halyard system.  In 2003, Deschamps created its US subsidiary and in 2005 began manufacturing flagpoles in North Carolina.



 It is a material which provides a higher wind resistance than aluminum or steel with a much lower weight.  It does not corrode and, with its gel coat finish, looks beautiful for years.  It is ideal on coastlines where corrosion can destroy anything made of metal.  Installers love fiberglass flagpoles as they are easy to transport and easy to install.  While we do not recommend it, a 40-ft fiberglass flagpole can be installed by just one person.  Fiberglass flagpoles do not need to be painted.  The standard color is white, matching many door or window frames, fences, and other residential decorative elements.  They are also available in many colors.  Because the color is not a paint, it does not flake or lose its tint, so no need to ever repaint it; it can be washed and buffed from time to time to regain its luster.  Strength, low weight, durable finish are just a few of the many reasons fiberglass flagpoles are the best choice.



               Whether they are made by Flagmore or by Fiberglass Flagpoles of America, we use molding techniques with either clamshell steel or mylar molds, a superior process than filament winding*.  This process allows continuous glass fibers to be laid in the vertical axis providing very high wind resistance for a low weight.  This molding technique also allows the application of a gel coat to the mold prior to laying the fiberglass resin composite; both the gel coat and the composite then cure together producing a strong, durable, and shiny finish.

* One common alternative to our molding process is a filament winding technique; this technique does not allow the positioning of fiberglass filaments in an optimal direction, therefore producing poles with a lower wind resistance pound for pound.  The finish on these poles is also applied as a separate step; it is often a paint which does not bind well with the composite material, and produces an outer coating which becomes powdery, cracks, and loses its luster very quickly.
