UK manufacturer of batteries, chargers and power management systems for military and industrial applications, Lincad, has been given a Bronze Award in the Employer Recognition Scheme run by the Armed Forces Covenant.

A long-standing signatory to the Covenant, Lincad has pledged to support members of the armed forces and is open to employing veterans and reservists as well as their spouses and partners.

For over 30 years, Lincad has been supplying the MoD and the defence primes, developing lighter, more powerful batteries with faster, more flexible charging solutions for applications ranging in size from man-portable soldier equipment to artillery pointing systems and robotic vehicles.

Janet Rowe, Joint Managing Director at Lincad, commented: “It has always been part of our heritage to support our soldiers in the field by helping them to operate more effectively.  Being a signatory to the Armed Forces Covenant is important to us and we’re delighted to have received this recognition of our efforts to support all current and former members of our armed forces.”
