Pexa, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of coatings and surface treatment products to aerospace and other markets, has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

“We are thrilled to win the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the first time”, said Jim Rowbotham, founder and managing director. “HRH The Duke of York was kind enough to declare our new premises open when we moved here a couple of years ago. He suggested we try for the award and, encouraged by that, we did. Thanks to him for giving us a push in this direction.”

Pexa began in 2002 as a business based on specialist know-how in aerospace coatings and establishing a unique position in the market, working with its supplier partners to develop strategies for commercialising, delivering and technically supporting their products.

Its customers are high-tech engineering companies in manufacturing and maintaining aircraft & defence equipment, energy infrastructure and electronics. Key products are surface treatments, paints and NDT products. They have very high-performance properties but are also subject to chemical regulations and are hazardous for shipping. These are important challenges when supplying them internationally and Pexa’s team is effective at managing these issues and ensuring that customer projects are delivered on time.

The company now has more than a thousand customers in over 40 countries, and it is providing products and services for major projects such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Airbus A350XWB and the F-35 Lightning II amongst many others.

This award recognises Pexa’s growth in international markets of over 70% in the last three years. In that time, the company has opened new offices and outlets in Spain, southern France, North Africa and India.

Pexa has adapted its offer to match different regional needs and established offices with teams recruited in the regions they serve.
