Meet one of our ex-military defence contractors 

Adam Lythall is just one of the many ex-military defence contractors we’ve worked with here at M&E Global.  

After joining M&E Global back in 2016 as a Fuel System Distributor, Adam (who worked in the military for over 13 years) has since progressed to become an Environmental Safety & Occupational Health Specialist in Mannheim, Germany:  

“Working at M&E was without a doubt ideal for my transition. Of all the people who I met when I first started my contract, about 90% were ex-military, so in a way it felt like I’d never left! We had the same banter, the same laughs – it was a real home away from home.”
