Company’s Military Initiatives Honored for being ranked among Nation's Most Military-Friendly® Employers
For the fifth consecutive year, ADS, Inc. has been named as one of the nation’s military-friendly employers. ADS has been honored with a 2019 Military Friendly® Employer designation by VIQTORY in the publisher’s annual nationwide rankings. The designation recognizes companies that seek out and employ military talent, as well as work to benefit the military community. ADS was previously recognized as a Military Friendly® Employer starting in 2014.
Founded in Virginia Beach more than 20 years ago, we're a solutions-based gear and equipment supplier serving the Department of Defense and numerous federal, state and local agencies. Veterans make up more than one third of the company’s staff.
“Supporting our nation’s military and first-responder communities is at the very core of our business, so this Military Friendly® Employer designation is always a great honor for everyone at ADS,” “Like any company, we look to hire the best and brightest, and the fact is our military is filled with incredible talent that transitions very well into a company like ours.”
-Jason Wallace, CEO of ADS
The Military Friendly designation comes just months after ADS formed a new charitable foundation aimed at bolstering its long-time support for the military and emergency response communities.
The company’s newly formed Mission Give Back Foundation now enables ADS to award scholarships to children of military and first responder families, increase charitable giving and impact the local community more effectively than ever, company officials said.
