Pico Technology, based in St Neots, UK are today 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
