Receiving the award from HM Lord Lieutenant, Mrs. Jennifer Tolhurst, Pickering CEO, Keith Moore commented: “Pickering is a family-run business and we are honoured to have won such a prestigious award. Our aim is to support customers in hi-tech industries by providing highly-reliable solutions for their specific problems, rather than selling them a ‘catalogue part’. Our success is due in largely to the flexibility of our workforce who are committed to providing on time delivery of complex systems. We have worked hard to create this environment globally, and the award is testament to this. We thank the Queen’s Award committee for the Award which we will treasure.”
