Labcal’s laboratory and services are accredited to UKAS (ILAC) and ISO 17025 Standards in recognition of their high competence and performance capability. Over the years Labcal has built a strong reputation for its excellent personal customer service and support throughout the calibration process.

Founded in 1988, the Gill Group is formed of four companies, Gill Instruments, Gill Sensors & Controls, Gill Research & Development and Labcal. The Group designs, manufactures and tests industrial measurement and control instruments, which are used worldwide in performance demanding industries including meteorology, motorsport, marine and defence.
