The James City County Business and Technology Incubator - founded by James City County (JCC) and its Economic Development Authority (EDA) and currently managed by the College of William & Mary’s Technology Business Center – recently added its fourth client on July 1, American Eagle Flag & Flagpole, LLC.
American Eagle Flag & Flagpole, LLC is the Incubator’s first transitional company. American Eagle Flag & Flagpole began its operation in New Jersey and is transitioning to James City County via the Incubator. The company has more than 20 years of experience with flagpoles and flag products for commercial and residential use in addition to selling a variety of flags made in the United States. Additional information about American Eagle Flag & Flagpole, LLC is available on their web site, www.americaneagleflag.com or by calling (757) 258-1776.
“James City County has been our second home for many years, and we have always intended to move our home and business here permanently. The access to both Hampton Roads and Richmond, in addition to the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula makes James City County a logical business location for us, especially with the County located in the Historic Triangle where our country began,” said John Sullivan, owner of American Eagle Flag & Flagpole. “The services the Incubator will provide will allow for a smooth permanent transition to expanding in these markets.”
“James City County is excited to offer transition services and relocation assistance through the Incubator to companies like American Eagle Flag & Flagpole, an established small business in another location.” said Thomas Tingle, EDA Chairman.
The James City County Incubator offers its clients a wide-range of services tailored to each company’s business-specific needs, including educational programs through the Mason School of Business, development of business and financial plans; access to local service providers; and introduction to financing and funding resources. Incubator clients can range from fledgling companies to existing businesses that are transitioning to new locations.
