The HIRE Vets Medallion Program Award recognizes organizations for their efforts in hiring and supporting military veterans.

...it is only natural that we consider this experience to be of tremendous value, not only to our company, but to our customers and partners as well.

Demco Automation, a leading supplier in industrial robotics and automation, was presented the HIRE Vets Gold Medallion Award for 2019 by the U.S. Department of Labor. The program is now in its second year and recognizes employer efforts to recruit, employ, and retain military veterans.

The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act (HIRE Vets Act) is the only federal-level veterans' employment award that recognizes a job creators' commitment to hiring American military veterans.

This year, the company is recognized as one of only 28 within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and 427 across the country. "Receiving this award from the U.S. Department of Labor is truly an honor." says Stephen Maund, President & CEO of Demco Automation. "We have employed U.S. military veterans for over 15 years and continue hold their service in high regard when recruiting new team members. As a provider of advanced-technology to a broad list of industry sectors including defense, it is only natural that we consider this experience to be of tremendous value, not only to our company, but to our customers and partners as well."

The awards were presented at a ceremony hosted by Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia at the Department's headquarters in Washington, D.C.

"The recipients of the 2019 HIRE Vets Medallion Awards demonstrated a commitment to hiring veterans and helping them develop meaningful, long-term careers," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. "From small-town businesses to Fortune 500 companies, these employers understand that veterans are uniquely qualified and dedicated employees who make significant contributions in the workplace."
