Cummins Pledges Support to the Armed Forces Community

London, U.K.
The signing of the Armed Forces Covenant

Cummins announced today that the company has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, which is a formal commitment to support current and former military personnel, and their families.

The agreement will support service leavers as they seek to transition back into the workforce and ensure that all those who serve, or have served in the Armed Forces, are provided fair and equitable opportunities for employment.

Cummins hosted the Armed Forces Ceremony on 14th November to bring together employees, civil servants, and members of the Armed Forces to celebrate the signing of the Covenant.Armed Forces Covenant logo

Cummins, which is a global power technology leader with a footprint of 5,400 employees in the UK was previously honoured as a Military Friendly employer in 2021 for its work to support veterans and their spouses through employment and supplier initiatives.

Now, Cummins has joined more than 7,000 organisations in the UK to make an official declaration of support and demonstrate the company’s commitment to empower the Armed Forces community inside and outside of work.


  • Employment support for services leavers by working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) – the official provider of resettlement which has supported veterans to civilian life for over 20 years
  • A veteran’s transition experience programme to enable armed forces leavers to gain experience of work with Cummins
  • Redeployment support for spouses and partners needing to move to accompany their serving spouse/partner
  • Support for colleagues who are members of the Reserve Forces, granting additional paid leave for duties
  • Encouraging employees to volunteer to be military cadet helpers or instructors, recognised through Cummins’ Every Employee Every Community programme

Antonio Leitao, Vice President of Off-Highway, Engine Business & Europe Area Business Organisation, said: “We are proud to support serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families and we recognise the great value that the Armed Forces community brings to our business and the country. People who have served in the armed forces add enormous value to a business, bringing vast experience and skills that are grounded in leadership, decision-making, and teamwork. We’re committed to attracting and retaining a wide range of talent. Signing the Armed Forces Covenant will allow us to welcome new colleagues whilst supporting our outstanding ex-Forces team members.”

Nicole Lamb-Hale, Vice-President and General Counsel for Cummins, added: “Cummins supports all those who serve, or have served in the Armed Forces, and we thank the community for the real and enduring commitments they continue to make. I am pleased to celebrate this momentous agreement with my colleagues and the Ministry of Defence.”

Air Vice-Marshal R T I Munro CBE TD VR DL, Commandant General of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force and Chief of Staff Reserves said: “On behalf of the UK Ministry of Defence, I am delighted that Cummins has signed the Armed Forces Covenant to pledge its support to those who have served and are serving our country. I am excited to see the support to Veterans and their families during the transition from military to civilian life by giving them equal access to meaningful employment. As a reservist myself, I am grateful for the support to the Reserve Forces by granting them additional paid leave so that they can carry out their duties. It is fantastic to see the unique contribution that the Armed Forces community continues to make to the business community and wider society.”

Cummins formally launched the Europe Veterans Employee Resource Group in February 2021 which is focused on ensuring that the company creates a diverse and inclusive environment for military veterans as both existing and potential employees.
