The nation’s largest flag (160-by-90-feet) was raised this past Flag Day, June 14, in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The occasion? George P. Johnson Experience Marketing (GPJ) a premium experiential marketing agency and part of ESCA Board member company Project: Worldwide, is celebrating 100 years of producing some of the nation’s largest and highest quality U.S. flags.
GPJ also received a congratulatory note from S ESOP supporter and Senate Finance Committee member Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) commending the company for, “remaining family-owned, Michigan-based, and employee and community focused” as they experienced phenomenal growth.
GPJ has been in Michigan since 1914 – starting off as a sail-making business. GPJ’s experience marketing work can be seen at auto shows, information technology events and other face to face marketing initiatives, but has also diversified its offerings to include advertising, shopper marketing, consumer engagement, content production and interactive experiences.
Throughout the company’s 100 years, GPJ has never strayed from its roots as a tight-knit, family-owned company. In 2005, GPJ became 100 percent employee owned. ESCA salutes GPJ and Project: Worldwide and sends our congratulations to their employee-owners.
