Currently, all flag machines are still made in-house according to Bud Blackburn’s original blueprints with only slight modifications made over the years. “The same simplistic principal is still there, technology has just enabled us to make things a little easier and faster today”, says CEO Jim Blackburn. The company currently has 50 employees in Neligh and 5 in Paso Robles, CA and exports flags to Canada, South America, Belgium, Spain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Puerto Rico, Australia, Italy and Mexico and other countries.
