Pico Technology, based in St Neots, UK, are celebrating being named as winners of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s highest accolade for business success. The award, which has been given during Pico Technology’s 30th anniversary year, for their achievements in International Trade, recognises their long history of designing PC Oscilloscopes, PC Data Loggers and Automotive Diagnostics tools and exporting them around the world.

“It is a real honour 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,” announced Managing Director Alan Tong. “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 UK’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 the first PC Oscilloscope 30 years ago. Traditional oscilloscopes are bulky instruments that occupy a large area on an engineer’s
workbench. Our PC-based products, however, are portable and have brought oscilloscope technology within the budget of a typical personal computer owner. From their simple beginnings, these devices have evolved into a new class of test instruments that we call PicoScopes. Through innovative design, PicoScopes with high-level specifications are available that compare favourably with the most advanced test instruments from the world’s largest manufacturers.

Despite its global reach, Pico Technology has never lost sight of its responsibilities to the local community. We contribute to several UK charities, help to train students every year from nearby colleges, and are currently recruiting for several vacancies at our UK headquarters.
