Overview

Calibre Autoparts has the benefit of supplying a varied range of parts to our OEM customers. This means our customers can have the confidence to come to us and ask for multiple products, rather than sourcing at various suppliers.

Our core products are Mudflaps and Rubber Mats. Our mudflaps started as simple 2D mudflaps, where the data was taken by hand from vehicles.
Our mudflaps started as simple 2D mudflaps, where the data was taken by hand from vehicles. Now we produce complex 3D mudflaps, and have full integrated CAD systems to help design parts.

Similarly, the industry has changed in a big way on Rubber Mats. No longer does the industry like EPDM & SBR mats, primarily due to the uncertain nature of the odours and emissions, and have changed to a synthetic, environmentally friendly TPE based material.

As the times have changed, Calibre have been at the fore-front, making sure that we can continue to offer these evolving and improving products to our customers.

All of our products are manufactured using customer approved materials. Materials are tested and validated in independent laboratories, according to the customer’s requirements. Calibre is able to source and work with a large range of varying materials in order to ensure that the customer’s expectations are continually met.

Mudflaps

Calibre probably make the majority of mudflaps which are sold in Europe, and across the world, starting back with the old Datsun’s and Mercedes W123’s.

Mudflaps can be either designed in house fully, with consultation of our customers, or customers can provide us their own data which is ready to go. We have a full 3D Scanning facility to be able to take data from vehicles, and make mudflaps which are suitable for cars, vans and 4x4’s, and also 2D Rally style mudflaps.

Our materials can are all developed in conjunction with our customers, and we often supply 100% vehicle/bumper colour matched materials for specific vehicles.

Calibre were the innovators in the painted mudflaps, and have been supplying these direct into OEM’s.

Rubber & TPE Mats

Calibre specialise in both Rubber and TPE Mats. We design and develop our own data, either using CAD data or by visiting vehicles and getting our engineers to take vehicle specific data. We are able to mould completely 3D, complex mats, and large one piece van mats.

Recently Calibre successfully trialled multi colour TPE mats which we are excited to be taking into the mass market.

Calibre has a growing TPE division which uses a TPE material approved by many different OEMs. We have recently investe a further €250,000 into this division of our company. Our environmentally friendly process is done in the UK, providing cheaper logistics for our European customers.

Calibre has a collaboration with one of India’s largest rubber mixing and manufacturing plants, where we manufacture our mats. Our mats can be up to 3m x 2m in size, so we can make large one piece mats for vans using OEM approved SBR+EPDM fomulations.

We are able to convert compression moulding tools into injection moulding.

Carpet Mats

Calibre produce a high volume of tailored carpet and velour mats, and brand these for our customers, which include fleets, dealer networks and local markets.

We have arange of different grades and quality materials, and edging which we can offer our customers.

Having invested €100,000 into our processes, we have a fully automated system which includes automatic nesting and material optimistation to give efficiencies which we pass onto our customers.

Carpet/Rubber Bonding

Calibre are proud to have developed the technology to be able to bond carpet into rubber mats, which can offer our clients a premium mat product for high end vehicles and clientel.

Boot mats

Calibre make quality boot mats out of premium materials.

We have received several complaints about traditional vacuum formed boot mats, and the lack of flexibility, we developed a 3D EPDM boot mat which is able to roll up and be stored away easily.

Our range has grown to include TPE boot liner mats too, which we are able to colour code.

Body Side Mouldings

Many OEM’s stopped providing Body Side Mouldings to their customers as a cost reduction exercise on production vehicles. There is still a requirement for these parts, so Calibre manufactures them!

Calibre are experts in the complex tool design required to manufacture these parts to include a taping mechanism for custom formed tape, without any visible sinking on the painted surface.

We provide these parts as both primered and 100% body colour matched.

Scratch Protection

Calibre are able to provide full anti-scratch protection systems made out of a patented 3M material.

We are able to obtain the data ourselves from vehicles, and have the ability to produce quick and simple prototypes.

Scratch protection foils can come in various colours and effects, and can be applied to boots, door handles, door pillars, bonnets and many other areas as required. A cost effective way of protecting vehicle paint.

Others

Calibre are able to help with general supply issues, where tools are redundant and urgent parts needed.

We manufacture parts through our network, which include Acrylic headlamp protectors, chrome grilles, colour matched boot handles, and fuel cap closing mechanisms. We have made motor fans, and plastic fascias for the inside of vehicles.

Any plastic part we are able to manufacture. Just ask.
