CAL Trading (UK) Ltd trading as CAL International is a concept to production engineering company based in Knowsley, within the Liverpool City Region. Combining a wealth of engineering experience and expertise with the latest technologies to create an exciting blend of innovation and delivery we offer a collaborative, proactive approach to maximise opportunities and mitigate risks. Responding to market changes to deliver competitive engineering solutions. Driving the market by taking a step change in your product development & bringing your ideas to life – your design and development partner through the product life cycle. Customer focused solutions that stand out from your competitors.


We are an engineering design company based in Knowsley with around 35 employees. We do not manufacture products on site, so all production parts are outsourced.

We are required to attain ISO 9001:2015 certification to help us expand and win future business. As engineers we naturally despise paperwork, so our processes need to be simple, easy to work with and allow our engineers and employees to spend time working and not filling in unnecessary paperwork.

The ISO standard needs to be rolled out across all departments within the business. The accreditation should provide CAL with a level of credibility within our industry and with our customers. ISO9001:2015 will ensure work will be produced to a consistent standard and could allow us to win future business.

1. We require a supplier to implement ISO9001:2015 policies & processes so to ensure we can gain ISO9001:2015 certification.

2. We would look at a supplier who could also provide the implementation support and certification (UKAS). We would like the supplier to have a proven track record in implementing ISO9001:2015 within engineering companies. Understand how engineering works and how engineers interact with other departments.

Deliverable Timescale Would like this project to start early March 2018, be implemented in less than 6 months and be as simple as possible.
