Mark and Ann Meyer, Pewaukee natives, established Dawn’s Early Light Flags LLC in Bellevue, Washington in 2010. Dawn’s Early Light manufactures United States flags for the federal government, including military branches and the Department of Homeland Security. With costs rising in Washington, they decided to move a portion of the operations back home to Pewaukee.
With the help of the Waukesha County Center for Growth, Mark officially opened a second location in Pewaukee in September 2018, in the hopes of eventually transitioning the entire business to that location.
Mark’s biggest concern is workforce, so the Center for Growth connected him with Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington Workforce Development. Mark has hired a production manager and two industrial sewers to date.
Pewaukee is a perfect fit for Mark and Ann, as they are already connected to the community. We’re happy to welcome them home!
