Kimpton Energy Solutions is proud to announce that we have committed to honour the Armed Forces Covenant. We recognise the value serving personnel – regular and reservists, veterans and military families – contribute to our business, our community and country.
Working with armed forces personnel has always been an important principle for Kimpton. We understand how difficult the transition can be for those leaving service and we aim to make this transition as easy as possible for them. We also fully recognise the valuable service reservists continue to offer.
We’ve long been aware that amongst these ex-service personnel there are some incredibly skilled people, who with retraining, become invaluable team members. The skills they bring in teamwork, organisation and discipline are all values that align perfectly with our own way of working.
Within the team at present
Tony Ferguson spent 24years in the Regular Army as part of the Irish Rangers, completed 3 Tours of Northern Ireland, 1 tour IRAQ and 1 tour of Kosovo. When leaving the Army he retrained as a plumber and upon successful completion, he joined Kimpton.
Keith Watts, our Health and Safety Officer has been with Kimpton for over 17 years. He’s also been an Army Reservist throughout this time and for 32 years in total. During his time with the business, he has been released on three occasions to help when help was needed. He’s served in Afghanistan, Iraq and on Operation Restrict in the UK, in the early days of the COVID crisis.
Phil Higham started life within the RAF as an armour weapons mechanic Assembling missiles and ejector seats. After leaving service, he joined the Kimpton team to re-train as an HVAC Service Engineer. His ability and commitment has since seen him progress to the position of Service Coordinator.
It’s another example of our commitment to our team and the community in which we live and work.
