Coltraco Ultrasonics proud to sign Armed Forces Covenant


Coltraco Ultrasonics says it is proud to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant. Commemorating the World War One Centenary in this way recognises the company’s history of public service.

“We, Coltraco Ultrasonics, commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. We recognise the value Serving Personnel, both Regular and Reservists, Veterans and military families contribute to our business and our country.”

The Covenant aims to support serving personnel, veterans and military families. The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by supporting companies and personnel, ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. So far, over 1,500 businesses have signed the covenant.

Three generations of the Hunter family have been involved in the formation and growth of Coltraco Ultrasonics, a British manufacturer of Ultrasonic Technology, and each have served in the armed forces.

One of the founders of the company, Mr E C Hunter, was a Royal Navy submariner and spent 27 years at sea. Co-founder and current CEO, Dr Carl Stephen Patrick Hunter is a former Greenjacket Officer in the British Army. Mr E C Hunter and Dr Carl Stephen Patrick Hunter co-founded the company when Carl left the military.  Now a third generation of the Hunter family work for Coltraco Ultrasonics. Meanwhile the third generation of the Hunter family has entered the Armed Forces, with former Technical Sales Manager Henry Hunter leaving Coltraco in 2017 to join the Royal Marines.
