TVS Supply Chain Solutions continues to demonstrate its full commitment to supporting the Defence sector by signing The Armed Forces Corporate Covenant.

This covenant provides a mechanism for TVS to officially sign up and pledge to behaving responsibly and transparently across all Defence contracts.

As part of the covenant, TVS recognise the value that Serving Personnel, both Regular and Reservists, Veterans and military families contribute to their business and country.

TVS also believe that those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether Regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services.

The corporate covenant includes a host of commitments which will encourage organisations to offer support in ways most appropriate to their situation and capacity; from participating in Armed Forces Day through to providing recruitment opportunities for ex-service personnel.

Irene Ainscough, Defence Director at TVS Supply Chain Solutions, said: “We have a strong relationship with the UK’s Armed Forces through our contracts with the Defence Support Group and the signing of this covenant shows our commitment to providing job security and continuity of service for all colleagues, including ex-military personnel.

“We recognise the value individuals associated with the armed forces can provide to our business. Their sense of discipline, their skillsets and professionalism only help to enhance our operational performance and customer satisfaction.”

TVS currently manages a number of contracts with the Defence Support Group, including the provision of heavy armour spares, field kitchen and general support consumable spare parts.  The company has dedicated defence facilities in Bicester and North Luffenham, which manage over £10 million of inventory, covering a range of 130,000 NATO Stock Numbers.
