Statement on Pickering’s BREXIT preparations
BREXIT (the UK’s exit from the European Union) may raise concerns and questions with some of Pickering’s customers and suppliers. Therefore, the below is an overview of Pickering’s plans to manage and avoid any disruption, as a result of an orderly or disorderly BREXIT.
This page will be updated with more details as more information becomes available.
BREXIT - Current situation - updated January 2021
The UK has now left the EU and has signed a full Trade Agreement with all tariffs set to 0% and no quotas.
Pickering’s position and planning for post BREXIT
Pickering is a UK owned and headquartered group that exports approximately 95% of its products to principal markets throughout Europe, North America and Asia. In addition to the UK factory in Clacton-on-Sea, Pickering already has the majority of its manufacturing operations, for both Pickering Interfaces and Pickering Electronics, inside the EU, with company owned facilities situated in Trinec and Bystrice in the Czech Republic, with over 200 employees. Additionally, Pickering has its own EU based sales offices in Germany, France, Sweden and the Czech Republic; thus Pickering is already well prepared for BREXIT.
