Vicki Wilkes the MD of Phoenix Calibration and a member of The Platinum Group, invited fellow Platinum Group members to the Director Morning, where they explained and demonstrated its approach to collaboration, innovation and customer support in a low volume bespoke business, centred on its customers testing, quality control and personal development requirements.

Vicki Wilkes said: “It was a great opportunity to be able to inform local manufacturers and businesses of the range and quality of innovative work we do here at Phoenix and to hear about the challenges they face - the only way the region will thrive and prosper, is if businesses work together to share knowledge and support the development of mutually beneficial technology.”
