Allied Materials maintains a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Kansas City, Missouri manufacturing cotton, nylon, and polyester American Flags. Allied employs a diverse workforce to turn American sourced raw materials into finished flags all under one roof. Allied's flags can be found flying over some of our nations most important institutions as a result of contracts with the United States Senate, Department of Defense, & GSA recipients. Allied proudly manufactures flags that support the local economy, American workers, and brings textile manufacturing back to the United States.
Allied Materials is providing employment opportunities in areas with the greatest economic impact. Being certified by the Small Business Administration as a HUB zone manufacturer focused on revitalizing the American textile industry in areas with very little economic opportunity. Allied Materials has invested in infrastructure to re-purpose a textile facility in Bogalusa, Lousiana that had been closed, cutting off a vital source of economic opportunity for the town. Allied Materials purchased the facility, revitalizing textile embroidery machinery it was able to offer employment to over 30 members of the local community. This facility affords Allied Materials the capability of being one of the very few flag manufacturers in the United States capable of embroidering StarFields for American flags.

Allied Materials acquired America's oldest jigsaw puzzle company from Hallmark in 2001. Springbok Puzzles has been a fixture of the American family for over 50 years. Hallmark acquired the brand in the late 1960s. Allied acquired the puzzle company, its distribution network, and its proprietary manufacturing facilities. These actions saved this beloved puzzle brand to the celebration of thousands of die-hard puzzle fans everywhere.
Allied Materials re-tooled and modernized the Springbok manufacturing process, preserving Springbok Puzzles as America's favorite puzzle. During Allied's management of Springbok Puzzles, the line has expanded into a variety of items, serving our nation’s most valuable retailer: the small, brick-and-mortar business owner. It is our privilege to support these retailers with a product made in America that supports America's small businesses.
