Stion receives ISO 9001 certification for mass-production facility

Stion Corp of San Jose, CA, USA, which makes nanostructure-based CIGSS (copper indium gallium sulphur-diselenide) thin-film photovoltaic panels, has received ISO 9001:2008 certification for its manufacturing site in Hattiesburg, MS (the firm’s first mass-production facility, opened in 2012) after passing an independent audit of its quality management systems.

Developed by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 9001 is the world’s most widely observed family of standards for developing and maintain quality management systems. NQA (one of the world’s largest and most respected ISO registrars) registered Stion after a three-month preparation process. This certification of compliance recognizes that Stion’s systems, policies and procedures adhere to the highest quality standards for the products provided to customers.

Stion says that, from its inception in 2006, it has designed a quality management system based on ISO 9001 principles, allowing it to achieve the certification in record time. The firm adds that it understands the market’s evolving needs, and continues to adjust its processes to deliver products that meet or exceed customer expectations.

ISO 9001:2008 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to (although this is not a requirement). It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity. ISO 9001:2008 is implemented by over 1 million companies and organizations in over 170 countries.
