CET Calibration: a new identity for a growing specialist

CET Calibration: a new identity for a growing specialist

Following acquisition by CET in May 2016, Chesterfield-based Omega Calibration has been rebranded as CET Calibration to signify its fully-integrated position within the wider business.

CET, a leading supplier of specialist outsourced services to the UK infrastructure, engineering and insurance sectors, acquired the calibration business as part of a wide-ranging growth strategy to develop a comprehensive set of services. As CET Calibration, the team will continue to provide complete metrology calibration solutions on-site or in the laboratory, covering a series of services including electrical, dimensional, temperature, pressure, testing and repairs.

Since acquisition, CET Calibration has enjoyed a series of successes and new initiatives, including the introduction of a new apprentice scheme, the launch of a bespoke gauge manufacturing service, and received Alpha standard accreditation for health and safety from Alcumus SafeContractor. In addition, it has increased the scope of its scale, tension and compression capacity – doubling it in volume – and signed a new supply agreement with Mitutoyu, a world leader in precision measurement.

Peter Eglinton, CEO of CET, explained the decision to rebrand: “Over the past 18 months, the calibration business has been transformed with investments in an expanded service portfolio, enhanced accreditations and an innovative job management system – the latter building on CET’s commitment to technological innovation. We now share a common technology platform and the calibration team truly share the CET mantra of ‘Giving Our All’.

“Omega is a long-established business and we have been working closely with the team to introduce a range of service and process improvements since the acquisition resulting in, for example, market leading turnaround times being achieved as standard. The business is better positioned than ever to provide a quality service to the UKs engineering and manufacturing base.”

Expansion is backed by private equity firm Dunedin, who provide both finance and management experience.
