During one of the customer audits, it was pointed that our calibration service provider is not accredited to ISO/IEC 17025?

Is this a requirement? We have had this service provider who is ISO 9001 certified and has traceability to NIST standards.

But are they competent? ISO 9001 isn't a check of competency of the lab. Calibration isn't just about having a documented process and traceability to NIST. Do the lab know how measurement uncertainty plays into their results, for example?

It's only required if the industry (like stijloor pointed out) requires it, or if there is a customer/contractual obligation.

Is there a problem with this vendor?

No issues. It was just an observation. Its not for automotive industry.
