Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. It is a family owned and operated company and has been since 1945.
We specialize in lawn and garden tools and dog clean-up tools, which are available at many quality retailers across the nation. These brands are made up of cutting, digging, cultivating, weeding, and clean-up tools
At Flexrake® we are committed to American manufacturing. We continue to employ Americans in manufacturing and do everything in our power to retain jobs in America. Our top selling garden and pet products are “Made in America”, here in Temple City, California. We believe that we can be competitive in America and we intend on continuing that philosphy. Our customers and our associates are and will remain our top priority.
Family owned and operated since 1945.
The economic growth of the United States following World War II saw parallel growth in many industries. The sheer volume of new agricultural fields and the explosion of residential properties required many new high quality hand tools.
Among the many to respond to the needs of the agricultural and landscape professionals was George Brock, our founder. George designed and manufactured a new durable and lightweight metal rake which was the first to feature curved tines that penetrated the surface of the turf. This made each stroke more efficient and required far fewer strokes to complete each raking project. George literally created the “Lawn Rake” market with his new “flexing rake.”
During the next few years George developed a strong following, yet he did not rest on his laurels. He continued to refine his manufacturing processes and created new metal composition. George wanted to ensure that each tine would individually flex and lift embedded debris from deep below the surface and at the same time, last job after job.
In 1975, after nearly 30 years, George hired John McGuire. John quickly learned about lawn and garden from George and many other industry professionals. Never satisfied with just conversation, John decided to work with the local landscapers to see just how our tools performed in the field. Ultimately, he set the company on a solid path of manufacturing and product development.
Today, Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. John makes sure that all of us here at Flexrake® continue to build on the foundation of enthusiasm for manufacturing great products that George Brock started 65 years ago.
Palmetto, Fla. (April 13, 2017)—Ruby is an exceptional golden retriever currently living and working with her visually impaired handler Francis “Frank” Goossens of Sarasota. But before she became Frank’s life-changing guide and eyes to the world, Ruby was born in the old puppy kennel at Southeastern Guide Dogs alongside her siblings Nell, Gussie, Ellen, Cody, Cashew, Dove, Ava, Clifford and Pinkie. Every year about 250 tiny superheroes-in-training are born and trained on Southeastern Guide Dogs’ 33-acre campus in Palmetto, Fla. For the first 10 to 12 weeks of life, the Labradors, golden retrievers and goldadors are tenderly cared for along with their mothers, brothers and sisters in a strategically designed program of health, early education and socialization where every paw-step counts on their journey to greatness.
But the puppy kennel that served Ruby and the organization so well for more than three decades eventually became too small and in need of constant repairs. It just plain wore out. Now, with the opening of the Grant & Shirle Herron Puppy Academy, newborns, moms and growing puppies will flourish in a purpose-built home during the first semesters of their Southeastern Guide Dogs experience—from birth to pre-school to kindergarten graduation—before being sent out to the loving homes of their volunteer puppy raisers.
Donor Shirle Herron of Sebring, Fla. provided the lead gift for the $4.7 million structure, which features about 15,000 square feet of climate-controlled interior space and about 5,000 square-feet of covered exterior. Every inch is designed with a focus on functionality, efficiency and sanitation, and is hurricane ready: built to withstand winds up to 150 mph. In addition, Southeastern Guide Dogs is unique in inviting the public to participate in the puppies’ early development via a creative and fun Puppy Kindergarten Adventure curriculum described here.
Noise and stress reduction elements, abundant natural lighting, comfort features and an enclosed outdoor gymnasium demonstrate the careful attention paid to the puppies’ and their moms’ physical environment. Key spaces include: Genetics & Reproduction; Whelping and Neonatal Care (Newborns to six weeks); Preschool (Newborns to six weeks); Clinic (All ages); Kindergarten and Enrichment (six to 10 weeks);and a small outdoor splash park funded by Southeastern Guide Dogs puppy raiser volunteers. The facility also contains a gift shop selling merchandise that supports the free programs Southeastern Guide Dogs provides to visually impaired students and veterans with PTSD.
“From playtime to training time, from specialized medical procedures to whelping and neonatal care, with attention paid to public interaction and educational enrichment, the Puppy Academy anticipates and exceeds the needs of staff and our young puppies,” says CEO Titus Herman. It is a beautiful facility built with "frugal quality" that reflects both our commitment to superb stewardship as well as exceptional care. In this environment enhanced by warm sunlight, privacy and serenity, our staff and volunteers will perform their cutting-edge work, while our future superheroes will learn and grow into their very special destinies.”
Southeastern Guide Dogs transforms lives by creating and nurturing extraordinary partnerships between people and dogs. Employing the latest in canine development and behavior research, the national organization trains guide dogs, service dogs and companion dogs for people living with significant challenges including those with visual impairments and veterans with disabilities.
All of Southeastern Guide Dogs’ services – which include selective breeding and expert dog training; comprehensive on-campus student instruction; and lifetime graduate follow-up – are provided at no cost to the recipients. The charity relies 100 percent on private donations and receives no government funding. Southeastern Guide Dogs has the distinction of being dually accredited by the two premier, global accreditation bodies: the International Guide Dog Federation and Assistance Dogs International. www.GuideDogs.org
