OBE awarded for Exceptional Achievements

Jul 05 2023

Robin MacGeachy, Chairman and Founder of PEAK Scientific, a leading global supplier of laboratory gas generation systems, has been awarded an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the King's Birthday Honours List.

Bestowed upon individuals in recognition of their exceptional achievements, Mr MacGeachy received his award for his services to manufacturing and philanthropy. His passion and commitment to fostering home-grown innovation within the highly successful UK manufacturing business he founded in 1997, alongside a long history of philanthropic contributions, have earned him this well-deserved honour.

A driving force at the Renfrewshire-based business, Mr MacGeachy has been instrumental in shaping the success of the Scottish company, which, as providers of gas systems to the life sciences and analytical lab markets, demonstrate that there is no barrier to building a highly successful technology export business here in the UK, given a degree of innovation and belief.

"I am humbled and deeply honoured to receive this recognition," said Robin. "I share this honour with the remarkable team at PEAK Scientific, whose unwavering dedication and passion have been instrumental in all our achievements. It is the team’s dedication to innovation that has propelled us forward and continued to set the bar when it comes to excellence in the industry.”

Beyond the realms of entrepreneurial success, Robin (alongside his wife and business co-owner, June) has been a steadfast advocate for many years of contributing to good causes and giving something back to local communities within which Peak Scientific operates. His contributions to the community span education and environmental sustainability to sports and the arts.

Jonathan Golby, Peak Scientific’s CEO, said "Robin’s visionary leadership and dedication to excellence have been instrumental in Peak Scientific's success. His guidance and commitment to innovation have positioned us as a global leader in our industry. We are immensely proud to see him honoured with this prestigious OBE."

The honour further cements his position as a leading figure in the industry and a source of inspiration for aspiring entrepreneurs.
