CoMech Metrology are a metrology specialist who have grown from strength to strength since their inception in 1985. We are proud to be a solution to some of the biggest names in the UK’s transport industry while providing accredited calibrations to others. No matter the size of the job or complexity.

Since its formation in 1985, CoMech Metrology has combined years of knowledge with the continued best possible quality and service. Our roots are firmly established within the rail sector, but also provide measurement solutions to the automotive and aerospace sectors.

Based in the heart of the UK in Derby, the business absorbed its operations with the ex-British rail calibration laboratories from Serco Rail, which became the UK rail industry’s only technical support provider for measurement.

This expansion of the company led to moving the compliance, administration, sales, marketing, logistics and finance departments to the RTC (Rail Technology Centre) in 2016. This was a significant step towards providing scope for future scope for future growth into other sectors in addition to rail – such as aerospace, automotive and general high-tech engineering. The move was also a poignant return to the rail technology site where it began in 1985.

CoMech are proud to have gone from strength to strength, both in team size and the ability to keep up with ever-changing and evolving technology, compliance and regulation within the industry.
