Laboratory gas generator manufacturer Peak Scientific has pledged to honour the United Kingdom’s Armed Forces Covenant.

As a global company, headquartered in Scotland in the UK, Peak Scientific is approaching 500 employees worldwide, with over 200 employees situated in the UK. Many of the company’s UK employees have come from military backgrounds, are military spouses or are Armed Forces Reservists.

By committing to the Armed Forces Covenant, Peak Scientific has agreed to support the employment of veterans, both young and old, and to establish a tailored employment pathway for Service Leavers.

The company will also endeavour to be flexible in granting leave for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment.

“We feel it is our duty to support these individuals wherever we can, which is why we have committed to the Armed Forces Covenant.”
