Pico Technology wins Queen's Award for Enterprise

April 26, 2022

Pico Technology, based in St. Neots, United Kingdom, was named the winner of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the U.K.’s highest accolade for business success. The award, which the company received during its 30th anniversary year for its achievements in international trade, recognizes its history of designing PC oscilloscopes, PC data loggers and automotive diagnostics tools and exporting them around the world.

“It is a real honor to receive this award during the same year we are celebrating 30 years of continuous growth as a company. This is the second time we have won a Queen’s Award since our foundation in 1991,” managing director Alan Tong said. “The company has grown every year since then, contributing to the local and national economy and employing over 176 people at our offices across the globe. I believe that this award reflects not only our own success, but also the continuing importance of the U.K.’s manufacturing and technology sectors to our country’s prosperity especially throughout the tough last couple of years during the pandemic. I would like to thank the team at Pico, our customers and suppliers and our partners worldwide for their contribution to our story.”

Pico Technology introduced its first PC oscilloscope 30 years ago. Pico's PC-based products are portable and are designed to bring oscilloscope technology within the budget of a typical personal computer owner.

Despite its global reach, Pico Technology has never lost sight of its responsibilities to its local community. The company contributes to several U.K. charities, helps to train students every year from nearby colleges, and recruits for several vacancies at the U.K. headquarters.
