USL received The Queens Award for Enterprise - International Trade - during a recent ceremony at the USL factory in Aldershot. The presentation was made by the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire representing H.M. The Queen. Others present included the Deputy Lieutenant, the Mayor of Rushmoor and the Chief Executive of Rushmoor Council and the immediate Past President of the British Institute of Nondestructive Testing, together with presnt and past USL staff. The picture shows the Lord Lieutenant handing over the scroll signed by H M The Queen and the Prime Minister to the USL directors.
Before the presentation the guests toured the USL facilities and saw several scanning systems in progress or awaiting delivery and also USL's dual robotic system used for development of new applications.
Without exception the local guests, who were previously unfamiliar with the USL business, were very surprised to see the level of technology and manufacturing expertise existing in their borough.
