TranServ installs Veterans’ Signs
This Remembrance Day, Scotland TranServ is working with veterans’ organisation, Scotland’s Bravest in the production of new trunk road signage.
The company, based at Erskine Veterans Village Estate in Bishopton has initially produced 6 signs for the South West network. Production involved 6 teams from across the manufacturing company, which employs ex-services personnel with long-term health conditions which has affected their ability to work.
Scotland’s Bravest aims to provide confidence and transferable skills to help veterans back into the world of work. They produce road, rail & bespoke signage and other printing and engineering cutting services.
Robert Lappin, Scotland’s Bravest’ Veteran Welfare and Development Manager said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Scotland TranServ to the Scotland’s Bravest family. Our veterans’ injuries range from severe physical injury (including amputees) to chronic mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and PTSD. It is our aim to help them develop new skills, build confidence and gradually become work ready, supporting them into future mainstream employment.
“Contracts like this from Scotland TranServ are helping to put our organisation on the map, and more importantly provide hope for our veterans that someday soon they can return to the workplace, as a valued team member, building their future through a valued career.”
Signage will be installed on the network from Monday the 11th of November, at sites including the A738 at Kilwinning.
Paul Lynch, Scotland TranServ’s Network Manager added:
“We’re delighted to be working with Scotland’s Bravest to produce bespoke signage for Scotland TranServ’s south west trunk road network. These veterans have bravely put their lives on the line, so that we and our families can enjoy the freedoms that we have become used to. It is a privilege to do what we can to help them regain the confidence and acquire new skills to help them back into the world of work.
“Scotland TranServ employs a number of ex-services personnel across our Operations and TRISS teams, dedicated employees who have served in conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Northern Ireland. They are an asset to our organisation and to the thousands of customers they support on our trunk roads day in and day out.”
