SemiNex Achieves ISO 9001:2008 Certification
TUV USA certifies SemiNex Corporation as ISO 9001:2008 compliant
SemiNex Corporation is proud to join over one million companies and organizations worldwide in implementing ISO 9001:2008. SemiNex’s Quality Management System received ISO 9001:2008 certification from TUV USA, part of TUV NORD International.
Achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification usually takes up to 16 months, and typically takes between 7 to 12 months. SemiNex was able to obtain certification in just 3 months, due in large part to the previously-existing comprehensive quality system which had been continually improved over the last 5 years.
ISO 9001:2008 is an internationally-accepted set of standards for quality management systems. SemiNex views the certification as a formal declaration of their commitment to implementing a process that supplies customers with consistently high-quality laser diodes. This is reflected in their official Quality Policy: We design & build laser products that consistently meet or exceed our customer expectations. Continual improvement is expected in everything we do.
“Since the founding of SemiNex Corporation, we’ve focused on providing quality products and technical support to our customers,” said SemiNex President and founder David Bean. “Achieving ISO certification is a reflection of the processes and attention to detail already in place at SemiNex. I am very proud of the SemiNex team for their dedication to providing our customers with the best in laser performance and quality.”
The SemiNex team approached certification with the mindset that a review of the company’s processes and procedures would be of value both internally and externally. In addition to the formalization of the Quality Policy, the team worked together to ensure that all internal procedures and policies reflected this policy. Externally, SemiNex believes that customers will benefit from the continuous improvements made in support of ISO certification.
