Airgas has earned Silver Recognition and been named by VIQTORY to the 2021 Military Friendly® Employers list for the second year in a row.

The Air Liquide company was one of approximately 200 employers to earn the designation, which recognises those providing the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses.

In order to earn the distinction, Airgas completed a comprehensive survey evaluated using both public and government data sources. 

Commenting on the award, Jean-Philippe Soulard, Senior Vice-President at Airgas Human Resources, said, “Airgas is honoured to have received this designation and remains dedicated to continue supporting the military community.”

“The company proudly supports service members and currently employs around 1,000 veterans who successfully perform in a wide variety of roles, within all divisions and business units and in many Airgas locations.”

“Hiring veterans is important to Airgas, as veteran associates play an invaluable role within their respective teams given the skills, values and overall leadership characteristics learned while tenured with their military service.”
