Discrete semiconductor manufacturer EIC has been awarded the prestigious
which defines quality system requirements for the automotive industry. Customers can now have added confidence that EIC
fully complies with the rigorous quality, of both products and manufacturing procedures, required by automotive
EIC has been supplying products into the automotive industry for many years. Until now,
EIC has concentrated on meeting or exceeding individual customer quality requirements.
ISO/TS16949 was introduced in 2002 to combine quality system
standards from the largest automotive companies into one international standard. Automotive standards are much more
stringent than those widely used in other applications due to the wide range of temperature needed
(-65oC to 175oC) and the consequence of system failure in a vehicle. For the past year, EIC has constantly been
assessed to ensure that its factories are fully able to meet this demanding standard, culminating in certification
in December 2007.
“Being awarded ISO/TS16949
certification further demonstrates EIC’s commitment to producing products of the highest quality and durability”
said Mr Witaya Chakphet, Managing Director for EIC. “I would like to thank my employees for working hard to
achieve this standard. EIC offers a wide range of products dedicated to the automotive industry and this award reinforces
the company’s long term dedication to this important market sector.”
Together with the existing ISO9001 and ISO14001
awards already granted, EIC can ensure that all measures are in place to deliver high quality products, quickly and
effectively to customers. Copies of the certificates can be found on the company website at
