Calibre Autoparts is built on years of Engineering, Research & Development expertise. We love innovating new products and turning ideas into reality.

Unlike most of our competitors, we do not like to sub-contract work out, and lose control of situations. Design and tooling is done in house. Having our expertise under our roof gives us the ability to be flexible and work efficiently.

Over the past few years, our Research & Development department has grown to embrace TS 16949 standards, and we are continually looking for ways to improve.

One of our key areas of expertise is revitalizing old tools. To many people this may be seen as a dirty job, but we love to get stuck in, and solve problems. This helps out our customers in a time of need, and we become a trusted point of contact to help in difficult situations.

This area of the site will show you some of our areas of expertise.
