Company wins fourth Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade while boosting turnover by 20% to £30 M.

Peak’s service ethos and quality gas generators are testimony to what can be achieved by embracing design and innovation to challenge the industry’s giants.

Manufactured in Scotland, Peak generators nullify the need for large cumbersome, expensive to transport gas cylinders and deliver a high purity of Hydrogen and Nitrogen gas in a much safer and efficient way to labs worldwide.

This prestigious award recognises Peak’s outstanding achievement in international trade and growth overseas, and is decreed by the Queen on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. The company’s success has also had a significant impact on the economy and skills base for the locale of the company’s Scottish headquarters.

Peak Scientifics’ commitment to matching product to customers’ needs and world-class after care is also boosting the profitability and efficiency of its customers across the globe. The company’s modular systems for Gas Chromatography applications are designed to allow customers to add generators as their gas needs change, bringing a much higher degree of flexibility to lab staff.

“Innovation and client service are at the heart of all we do” states Peak Scientific MD Robin MacGeachy,“ and this requires investment in quality materials and smart people across all areas of the business, at home and abroad.”

Robin believes that one of the key factors that allow Peak Scientific to excel within the market place is their 'industry best' after sales care and says, “Our products are now exported to just about every major market in the world and reliability is critical to many of our customers. In keeping with our brand promise, we offer the industry’s’ best after-sales care with a 95% first-time fix record and a commitment to have a Peak engineer on a client’s door-step to solve any issues within 72 hours… anywhere on the planet.”

The company, who recently hosted the Right Honourable Dr Vince Cable MP, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills at their Glasgow HQ, has more innovations on the drawing board and the future looks like it will continue to be bright for the 270 strong Peak Scientific team.
