Solyndra has received ISO 9001:2008 certification, authorized by TÜV Rheinland. The internationally recognized standard provides a set of requirements that must be in place to have a quality management system, regardless of the organization’s size, product or service line, or public or private status.
“To meet strong product demand we are ramping our Fab 2 facility, and this certification recognizes the strength of the processes and procedures that we have put in place to ensure the highest levels of quality as we rapidly scale our business,” said Ben Bierman, Solyndra’s executive vice president of operations and engineering. “Obtaining ISO certification demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement and delivering the highest levels of service and product quality to our customers around the world.”
Certification to the ISO 9001:2008 standard is voluntary; however, organizations must complete a rigorous auditing process by a third-party registrar.
