CST Global attains ISO 9001:2015 for III-V semiconductor lasers.

18 April 2017

CST Global has confirmed its successful attainment of ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for Quality Management Systems applicable to the design, development and manufacture of optical devices. The accreditation’s scope adds exacting management processes and procedures to all 3” and 4” wafer fabrication and test processes.

Gerald O’Connor (pictured), quality control manager at CST Global explained, “ISO 9001: 2015 demands that all management, production and test processes are measured and maintained. Responsibility for this is assigned to the CST Global management team. We operate in a potentially hazardous environment, using many toxic materials. Validated risk assessments are essential, with continuous measurement of all processes a requirement. This includes the new MOCVD machine and the automatic bar stacker machine for 4” wafers. Many of our suppliers meet equivalent standards and, ultimately, it gives our customers total confidence in the quality of our products.”

Neil Martin, CEO of CST Global, added, “ISO 9001: 2015 accreditation impacts every aspect of the company. For its successful implementation, staff across the entire company must take responsibility for their individual part of the quality process. We commend Gerry for achieving this so effectively. CST Global can now supply market-leading companies in the data centre, cloud and telecommunications markets, who expect this level of quality control.”
