Owned by veterans, Waltron places great value on the importance of the military to protect and preserve the freedoms enjoyed by its employees and customers. From its Bull & Roberts days supporting maritime applications, the company has maintained a special division dedicated to support the water chemistry needs of our military and government. In 1991, the company was recognized by the US Army for its massive build out of field hypochlorination units in support of Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
Our ability to redesign products to meet military specifications and to administer major contracts in compliance with defense procurement regulations has qualified us to handle the military marketing requirements of major U.S. corporations.
Waltron is proud to have been selected by the New Jersey Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) to receive its prestigious 2015 Pro Patria Award. The company was also recognized as a 2015 semi-finalist for the annual Department of Defense Freedom Award for its support of reservists and veterans.
The Pro Patria (which translates to ‘for the nation’) is the organization’s highest award and is given to the outstanding employer of National Guard Members and Reservists within the state. Jennifer Hwang, Director of Engineer and a 2005 Graduate of West Point, accepted the award on behalf of Waltron during a special ceremony and cocktail reception on June 4, 2015, at the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Education Center and Memorial in Holmdel, NJ.
ESGR operates under the aegis of the United States Department of Defense, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs, and in New Jersey is comprised of over 150 volunteer members representing a cross section of the state’s employer / business community, elected officials at the municipal, county, and state level, senior representatives of each of the 7 military reserve organizations, service organizations, professional associations, and concerned citizens from all 21 counties within the state.
