RH Celebrates a Milestone in British History

A momentous occasion! Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne mark a historic milestone for Britain. We at RH Technical Industries are honoured to join the nation in celebrating this remarkable achievement.

Her Majesty’s reign has spanned a period of immense change. The world we live in today is vastly different from the one she ascended to the throne in 1952. Yet, throughout, she has remained a constant source of stability and inspiration.

We humbly mark this special occasion by planting a Liquidambar styraciflua tree. We hope this tree will brighten up the premises’ entrance for many years to come. Surrounding this tree, we will also sow some wildflowers once the roots have settled to create a small natural area to encourage wildlife like our struggling domestic bees. Habitat destruction is rapidly pushing 35 UK bee species towards extinction.

A Legacy Alongside Innovation

As we celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we at RH Technical Industries can’t help but reflect on the incredible technological advancements that have mirrored her reign. Since our founding in the 1950s, the world has witnessed a revolution in electronics and communication. Back then, printed labels were very basic, and membrane keypads were still a dream of the future.

The list is astounding: from the invention of the barcode and communication satellites to the rise of personal computers, the internet, and smartphones. These innovations, once unimaginable, now shape our daily lives.

Looking Forward with Gratitude

Queen Elizabeth II’s unwavering dedication serves as an inspiration to us all. As we look towards the future, RH Technical Industries remains committed to playing its part in shaping a world brimming with even more technological marvels.

We join the nation in wishing Her Majesty a very Happy Platinum Jubilee!

70 Years of Service to the UK & Commonwealth

The Platinum Jubilee for Queen Elizabeth II marks a milestone in British history. The Queen is the first British monarch to reach 70 years on the throne. She came to the throne on 6th February 1952, and her coronation took place the following year, on 2nd June 1953. Over her long reign, the world and the British Empire have dramatically changed. Global politics, De-colonialization, Communication, Entertainment, Technology, and Life are all hugely different in comparison over these 70 years. However, she has been a beacon of diplomatic perfection and a guiding light for the commonwealth during all these years. RH Technical Industries Ltd would like to honour Her Majesty by wishing the Queen a very Happy Jubilee!


Queen Elizabeth II is also the longest-reigning female head of state in world history, with only Louis XIV of France and Sobhuza II of Swaziland with longer reigns. The next longest-reigning British monarch was Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years, and despite his medical conditions, George III reigned for 59 years. The shortest was the unpleasant 9-day reign of Jane Grey, deposed by Queen Mary I in 1553. The Queen also reigned over 14 US presidents and 15 Prime ministers, starting with Churchill and Truman.
