With Armed Forces Week (AFW) in full swing, the team at Total Carbide paid tribute to the British Armed Forces community with a #SaluteOurForces today.
Westcott based Total Carbide Ltd is a defence employer, manufacturing parts for the defence and aerospace sector. Managing Director Andreas Hohmann explains: “Total Carbide is very much part of the Armed Forces Community, we signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2017 and have a Reservist and a Cadet Force Adult Volunteer working in our team.
“The company supports the armed forces community in many ways by offering placements and internships for the cadet forces. We also provide apprenticeships and guarantee job interviews for reservists, cadet force adult volunteers and ex service personnel.
As well as this, we also organise international exchanges between British and German Reservists, for instance last December we visited REME reserves in Scunthorpe/Rotherham, on behalf of the German Reserves of the Partnertown of Riesa where I come from in Germany.”
AFW is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces Community: from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets to companies like Total Carbide serving the defence sector.
There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved on Armed Forces Day which will be celebrated virtually on Saturday 27th June.
Total Carbide is one of the European leaders in the design and manufacture of tungsten carbide wear parts. The company provides wear part solutions to many of Europe’s major companies and is part of the Versarien Plc Group.
