GKN Aerospace receives award for support to UK Armed Forces

GKN Aerospace has been officially recognised by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) for its commitment to the Defence industry and its strong support for the UK Armed Forces community.

The UK MoD today awarded GKN Aerospace Silver in its Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), which recognises employers that support the Defence industry and actively encourage other businesses to do the same. A Silver accolade is given to organisations who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and which ‘pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to the Armed Forces community’.

Mark Miller, Director of UK Defense for GKN Aerospace, said: “It’s an honour to be recognised in this way and we are extremely proud to support our servicemen and women in the Armed Forces. GKN Aerospace has been at the forefront of the UK Defence industry for decades, and we look forward to continuing our leadership role during this exciting period for the industry as we start to develop the next generation of future combat air systems.
