Magnus Group extends ties with Royal Logistic Corps

14th December, 2022

Magnus Group HQ and the British Army

Magnus Group is proud to have formed a close relationship with members of the armed services based at Wattisham in Suffolk, close to our HQ.

The synergy is clear because these exemplary servicemen and women are members of the 132 Aviation Supply Squadron, which is part of the army’s Royal Logistic Corps.

It’s a rewarding two-way relationship.

Previously our Managing Director Mark Oakley and CEO Olly Magnus visited Wattisham to talk about life in Civvy Street logistics companies and what the 132 members might learn about our efficient transport and warehousing operations.

In return, we get to learn how the armed forces overcome many incredible obstacles to be an elite logistics operation worldwide.

And Olly got to sit in an Apache helicopter, thankfully not touching any buttons.

Last week, we hosted members of the 132 Aviation Supply Squadron at our HQ to show them our operations.

While we hope they found it interesting, picking up one or two ideas about how we tackle logistical challenges, it’s also an opportunity for the soldiers to possibly think about careers when they leave the Army.

As part of our relationship, we have sent them some t-shirts to use when on exercise (as in fitness, not on military exercises!).

We recommend that more companies get involved with local armed services personnel. It’s rewarding for all involved.

But most of all, they are fantastic and inspiring people.
