Proseal America honor recognizes hiring of veterans

Proseal America, the Richmond, Va., company that specializes in tray sealing equipment, has been recognized for its hiring of veterans.

The company received the 2019 HIRE Vets Medallion Award from the Department of Labor. The award was established by the HIRE (Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing) Vets Act of 2017.

Twelve of Proseal America’s 95 employees are veterans, according to a news release.

“We recognize that veterans can face several challenges adjusting to life outside the armed forces, yet at the same time, they have many skills and attributes that can be of great benefit to companies such as ours,” CEO Gari Wyatt said in the release.

The award was presented Nov. 6 in Washington, D.C.
