Pinnacle Complete Office Solutions, which is based near Newport, has become the latest Welsh employer to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and commit to providing equal opportunities to service personnel.

Managing director Clive Hamilton signed on the dotted line at a charity dinner alongside senior representatives from the Tri-Services in Wales.

The St Mellons-based company was set up in 1989 and has grown in to being one of the leading print and IT solutions providers in the UK, supporting clients large and small from all over the world.

It has joined a network of more than 1,000 employers across the country and from a wide spectrum of sectors that deliver fair access to public and commercial services to the Armed Forces community.

Audrey Nealon, regional employer engagement director for the Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association for Wales, said: “Clive and his team are very enthusiastic about supporting the Armed Forces Covenant. They’re committed to helping current and former service personnel and the rest of the defence family.

“They received a Bronze Employer Recognition Scheme Award and we very much look forward to working collaboratively with them to progress their policies.”

The Armed Forces Covenant has seen businesses, local authorities and charities develop a range of policies and procedures which benefit current and former service personnel, as well as their spouses and families.
