DAVENPORT, IA - PCT Engineered Systems, a manufacturing solutions provider that develops and implements automated systems and BroadBeam electron beam technology, has been awarded the Better Business Bureau’s annual Integrity Award.

The Integrity Award was established in 1993 to recognize those firms whose business practices and related activities exemplify the Better Business Bureau’s mission, “To Be the Leader in Advancing Marketplace Trust.” 

PCT was one of five local businesses honored at the Better Business Bureau’s annual Integrity Awards luncheon and awards ceremony on April 26.

PCT President Terry Thompson was pleased with the recognition, which stemmed from a nomination from a local company that conducts business with PCT.

“The culture, work ethics, honesty and integrity that drive the Midwest and particularly Iowa have allowed us to become a very successful company,” Thompson noted. “These core values come out every day in the things that we do. A company that is driven by integrity has distinct advantages when dealing with the many different cultures of the world, as we do.”

Export business for PCT has grown substantially in recent years, currently accounting for over half of total annual sales, and continued global expansion remains a priority.

“We are actively involved in producing systems that are exported all over the world,” said PCT BroadBeam Sales and Marketing Director Karl Swanson. “In fact, we currently are involved in projects with customers from Germany, Australia, Mexico, Taiwan and India, and we have initiatives pending in several other countries. The Integrity Award is wonderful recognition that our team has both grown and continued to do business the right way.”
