ISO 9001:2000 certification allows for standardized operating protocols, methods and procedures that guarantee each of our customers, at every site, is provided a consistent level of quality and execution
Dublin, PA (PRWEB) April 12, 2007
QuantumClean®, the leading provider of outsourced parts cleaning and refurbishment for the semiconductor industry, recently announced the ISO certification of its Advanced Technology Cleaning Center® in Scarborough, Maine.
The Maine site is the latest QuantumClean location to receive its ISO 9001:2000 certification. QuantumClean is actively pursuing ISO certification for the remaining U.S. sites, specifically for plants in Silicon Valley and the Pacific Northwest, which were recently acquired from Saint-Gobain. QuantumClean projects certification at all six U.S. sites by the end of April 2007.
"ISO 9001:2000 certification allows for standardized operating protocols, methods and procedures that guarantee each of our customers, at every site, is provided a consistent level of quality and execution," said Michael Brakefield, Corporate Quality Director for QuantumClean.
QuantumClean's ISO certification provides many benefits to its customers, such as assurance that business is operating as planned and that problems are being addressed effectively. Another benefit that ISO certification provides to QuantumClean's customers is that of an independent ongoing compliance review of business operations which bolsters the company's own continual improvement procedures. The documented and controlled processes required for ISO certification provide better consistency in performance and keep the company focused on the established business objectives to drive increased customer satisfaction.
The Maine ATCC® received ISO 9001:2000 certification on Feb. 24, 2007. QuantumClean acquired this location from Saint-Gobain in April 2006, consistent with its strategy to be the only outsourced parts cleaning provider with service centers in every major semiconductor market in the U.S.
ISO 9001:2000 is an international quality management system standard that aids in the operation of QuantumClean's business by meeting internal and customer requirements and requiring continual improvement. ISO certification also increases top management involvement and maintains enhanced customer satisfaction as the company's top goal.
