We are so honored to report that Biocom's endorsed supplier of gases, Airgas, has earned the 2020 Silver Level designation by Military Friendly!

Military Friendly is an organization that measures a companies' commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefits for the military community. This is Airgas' first year earning this award. The submission was spearheaded by AMG HR and supported by members of Airgas’ Military Veterans Business Resource Group (BRG).

Airgas is a proud supporter of all service members. The company currently employs 1,123 veterans – a number they hope continues to grow. Hiring veterans is important to Airgas. The veteran associates at Airgas play an invaluable role within their respective teams given the skills, values and overall leadership characteristics learned while tenured with the military.

Airgas continues to conduct targeted military recruitment efforts to help connect with transitioning military members and veterans on and off base. In addition, Airgas supports transitioning veterans in identifying opportunities for career growth during their post-military career with Airgas even offering a “Welding 101” training program free to any veteran.

Airgas is honored to have received this designation and is thrilled to continue supporting the military community, and Biocom is honored to be partnering with them across all of our veteran iniatives.
