"With this ISO certification, Altatech can improve its product quality and performance faster. Implementing this continuous improvement approach further increases our operating efficiencies while also reducing waste. Our closed-loop management system enables a more responsive organization to increase customer satisfaction," said Fabienne Guennou, manufacturing and services director at Altatech Semiconductor.
Over the past 18 months, Altatech Semiconductor’s research, development and production processes for its wafer-inspection, CVD and inkjet-printing products were thoroughly assessed by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance, an accredited ISO organization. All non-conformities were analyzed and resolved, with key performance indicators put into place to avoid any recurrence.
To support its continuous improvement program, Altatech Semiconductor conducted employee training and hired an in-house quality assurance manager and external consultants. Evaluations of the company’s quality management systems are conducted each month by in-house personnel and annually by external auditors.
The ISO 9001:2008 certification is scheduled for renewal in three years.
