AXT certified to ISO/TS 16949 automotive standard

AXT Inc of Fremont, CA, USA, which makes gallium arsenide, indium phosphide and germanium substrates and raw materials, has been certified as having met the international standards of ISO 16949:2009, a global standard developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF, a group of the world’s leading manufacturers and trade organizations). This certification defines the quality management system requirements for the design, development, production and, when relevant, installation and service of automotive-related products.

ISO/TS 16949 is currently the world’s most stringent quality management system standard for manufacturing and provides for strict adherence to the requirements of the worldwide automotive industry. The standard is a technical specification defining quality system requirements for manufacturing operations. It encourages the use of a process approach that is aimed at improving process efficiency and is designed to achieve the highest levels of product quality, productivity, competitiveness, and continual improvement.

Certification is “a demonstration of AXT’s commitment to serving our automotive customers,” says CEO Morris Young. “I am very proud of the work, led by our operations team in Beijing, that resulted in a successful certification to an internationally recognized quality standard as it underscores our ongoing mission to provide superior product quality and customer satisfaction,” he adds.
