London. 04 August 2022. NP Aerospace has announced that it has been awarded the UK Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve and their families. The silver award recognises companies that ensure the value of the Armed Forces is championed through employment of veterans, adult cadets and military spouses and through support for charities and organisations that raise funds for veterans.
NP Aerospace not only has a proud history of protecting the UK Armed Forces having delivered the Osprey body armour plate, Mk7 combat helmet and Mastiff vehicle, it recognises the value veterans, reservists, adult cadets, and their families bring to the industry through its recruitment policies and procedures. The company has a strong veteran employee contingent from engineers and project managers through to Board Directors and also supports veteran charities such as Team Forces, Support Our Paras and The Felix Fund.
James Kempston, CEO, NP Aerospace, comments: “Achieving the Silver ERS award provides recognition of our position as a Forces Friendly employer and furthers our mission to protect the lives of our Armed Forces, and our commitment is to continue this support for many years to come.”
