Monocrystal rated ‘Integration Partner’ by Osram
Monocrystal Inc of Stavropol, Russia, which manufactures large-diameter synthetic sapphire substrates and cores for LED, optical product and RFIC applications, has achieved the status ‘Integration Partner’ with Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH, reaching its highest possible supplier grade.
Osram runs an efficient Supplier Classification Program aimed at evaluating and qualifying business partners that can optimize its value chain and bring cutting-edge solutions, which can further drive both parties’ sustainable growth and development. Benefits of being an integration partner of Osram include early involvement in its strategic programs, regular technological roadmap alignment, and extensive communication on all levels.
“This very rarely given status demonstrates the close partnership we have, and even more our intention to strengthen it together with Monocrystal,” comments Osram’s Commodity Manager Thomas Wirthensohn. “Today only a few suppliers at Osram are rated as Integration Partners, and we expect that Monocrystal will support Osram in developing innovative products for a number of promising applications on its core markets,” he adds.
“We value our cooperation and understand our responsibility in supporting Osram in the extremely competitive LED market,” says Monocrystal’s CEO Oleg Kachalov. “We will continue our efforts in quality improvement and cost reduction, as well as in developing new products according to Osram’s current and future needs.”
