History

photo
Calibre Autoparts will be forever associated with Hitech Autoparts. Established in 1977, Hitech was a family company that grew from a small garage into one of the world’s leading designers and suppliers of mudflaps. Hitech was one of the world’s first mudflap manufacturers, a genuine innovator in the product line, and started by initially supplying mudflaps to a local Datsun dealer. With the support of their beloved mother, the family worked hard to grow the company. Hitech Autoparts has supplied nearly every major OEM across the world.

Following a corporate restucture, and by purchasing all the Intellectual Property, designs and naming rights for Hitech, Calibre Autoparts is proud to continue with the legacy of Hitech.

Quality

If we wouldn't buy it as a customer, we won’t sell it as a manufacturer. Calibre is 100% committed to delivering quality products, at fair and sustainable prices. Quality is designed into our products and processes using multi-disciplinary techniques. All of our manufacturing plants have been audited by our automotive customers, and we are proud to have passed with flying colours.

Calibre keep a close eye on our supply chain, ensuring they are continually audited so that we only purchase quality products and raw materials to convert into parts that we are proud to sell. Quality and efficiency go hand in hand at Calibre as we work towards Continual Improvement.

Calibre currently has ISO 9001. We are striving towards completing our TS16949 certification this year, and whilst we have passed audits which are aimed specifically towards TS level suppliers, we are working with a Management Consultancy firm to obtain formal certification.

Calibre has a duty to protect the environment, and has invested heavily into developing recyclable and green materials. We are working towards obtaining our ISO14001 certification.

The Health & Safety and welfare of our staff, whoare seen as extended family members, is paramount to our company. To that extent, we are investing in OHSAS18001 procedures and certification.
