- The representative of the British monarch of Essex County presented Keith Moore, CEO of Pickering, with the Queen’s Award for Pickering Interfaces for outstanding export growth over the past three years.
“Pickering is a family business. We are honoured to have won such a prestigious award. Our objective is to support customers in high-tech industries by providing them with very reliable solutions to their specific problems, rather than selling them a ”catalogue” product. Our success is due in large part to the flexibility of our staff, who are committed to delivering complex systems on time. We have worked hard to create this environment on a global scale. This price is proof of that. We thank the Queen’s Award Committee for the award we will treasure,” said Keith Moore, CEO of Pickering, when he received the award from H.M. Lord Lieutenant Jennifer Tolhurst, Queen Elizabeth II’s Personal Representative in Essex County and the first woman appointed to this position in the county since its inception in the 1500s.
Councillor John Jowers, Essex County Council President, all Pickering Interfaces UK employees and Pickering Electronics guests attended the ceremony.
95% of Pickering Interfaces’ production is exported outside the United Kingdom: 40% to North America, 35% to Europe and 20% to Asia.
Its sales have grown by an average of 25% per year over the past three years.
Founded in 1988, the British company based in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, designs and manufactures modular systems in PXI, LXI and PCI formats for signal switching and simulation to conduct electronic testing and validation.
