Comau is proud to be recognized as a Silver-Level Status Certified Veteran-Friendly Employer by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA). Comau is MVAA’s 25th employer to be awarded silver status; less than 8% of MVAA’s program participants are recognized at this level.

MVAA acknowledges companies that are committed to hiring and training military veterans and spouses by formally recognizing them as Gold, Silver, and Bronze level veteran-friendly employers. They also provide a Veteran-Friendly Employer program, which assists employers in their efforts to recruit, train, and retain veteran candidates. A formal presentation ceremony will be held in the near future.

In an effort headed by Comau North America’s Director of Business Development Martin Kinsella, Comau has joined forces with Operation Next to provide veterans the resources to transfer from active duty to civilian careers in manufacturing. This partnership played a large role in achieving this honor.
