1. “VFE provides a professional, reliable, price-competitive service whilst maintaining very good measurement uncertainties.”

Confidence that the product will meet quality expectations and that calibration test results are reliable is hugely important. Our UKAS accredited calibrations (UKAS Calibration Laboratory No. 4338) help to ensure that our customers’ plants are operating to the highest possible conformity standards so that their operations run smoothly and their product meets all internal and external quality standards. 

As well UKAS certification, we maintain the following accreditations:

  • ISO9001: 2015 Quality Management Systems

  • ISO/IEC17025:2017 Calibration Laboratories

  • Safe Contractor Approved

  • CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) registered

  • Construction Design and Management (CDM)

To make our calibration services accessible across the advanced manufacturing and heat treatment industries, we offer competitive pricing through ServiceCare agreements and planned, preventative maintenance contracts inclusive to all.

2. “VFE continually seeks to improve and develop our portfolio of calibrations, helping us achieve greater standards with their capabilities.” 

By improving and developing our customers’ portfolios of calibrations, we drive up quality standards across their operations and ensure regulatory compliance.

Our engineers have experience calibrating process equipment of every model and manufacturer, as well as the ability to make adjustments and re-calibrate equipment as necessary, on-site and in the same visit, minimising call-out costs and ensuring their standards never slip.

3. “VFE-administered calibrations take off the pressure to ensure you never miss a deadline, leaving you to deal with more important production issues.”

Manufacturing has been hit especially hard by the global pandemic. From social distancing directives limiting how many staff/contractors can be on-site at any one time to the rising cost of raw materials and supply chain failures, site managers today have enough to focus on without adding routine calibrations to the list.

As a single supplier capable of calibrating, adjusting and re-calibrating your equipment, we are well positioned to visit your site on pre-agreed dates and deliver your full suite of calibrations. By taking the calibration procedure off your hands and streamlining your reliance on third-party contractors, we’ll ensure you never miss a deadline while freeing you up to concentrate on managing the wider operations. 

The simplest and most cost-effective way of accessing our calibration services is through a ServiceCare agreement. To future-proof your calibrations and ensure your site is meeting the highest possible conformity standards in 2022, reach out to us today to find out more.
