PCME was honoured to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category from Mrs Julie Spence OBE QPM, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, at a special presentation ceremony held at PCME’s Headquarters in St Ives, Cambridgeshire.

The Award is in recognition of the development and subsequent success of the company’s in-stack particulate emission measurement range of products designed specifically for monitoring wet flue gases from industrial processes.

 It is the third Queen’s Award for Enterprise for PCME and their second success in the Innovation category, first won in 2007 followed by an International Trade category award in 2013.
