After it was awarded with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise earlier this year, specialist gas analysis solutions company Hummingbird Sensing Technology has been formally presented with the accolade at a special ceremony.
The UK-based company, which is a division of leading gas analysis company, Servomex, received the award to recognise its innovation in the design and manufacturing of its Paramagnetic oxygen (O2) sensors, widely used in medical and industrial applications.
Hummingbird officially received its award from the Queen’s representative, Peter Field, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for East Sussex, at Servomex’s Technical Centre, Crowborough. Led by Servomex Group President Chuck Hurley, the company’s current UK directors were in attendance, along with representatives from Servomex’s parent company Spectris.
Hurley enthused, “As worldwide leaders in innovation for gas sensing technologies, we are incredibly proud of our Hummingbird sensor brand winning the innovation award.”
“Continuous hard work has enabled us to be where we are today, through decades of research and design behind the paramagnetic sensor. I speak on behalf of everybody at Servomex and Hummingbird that this award is a special achievement for us all.”
Having received the award, the company will now be allowed to use The Queen’s Emblem in its advertising, marketing and on its packing for the next five years, as a symbol of its success.
