Skyworks Extends Key Automotive Certification To Mexicali Manufacturing Facility
Skyworks Solutions, Inc., an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, recently announced that the Company's expanded ISO/TS 16949 certification now includes its entire Mexicali, Mexico manufacturing facility. Skyworks' 2007 ISO/TS 16949 certification previously covered only certain facets of its Mexicali operations.
Jointly developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), ISO/TS 16949 is the automotive industry's international quality management system standard that answers the need for global consistency, continual improvement, and increased customer satisfaction. It is approved and released by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Achieving ISO/TS 16949 certification is enabling Skyworks to become a larger supplier within the automotive market, supporting opportunities ranging from keyless entry, to Bluetooth capability, to global positioning system (GPS), to satellite radios, to climate control, to sensors. Given that ISO/TS 16949 is a key differentiating standard across a wide range of industries, extending this certification also creates additional opportunities in markets such as broadband, consumer electronics, and meter reading.
"Skyworks is delighted to be able to extend this key quality certification to all facets of our manufacturing facility," said Nien-Tsu Shen, Skyworks' vice president of quality. "Achieving this rigorous accreditation allows Skyworks to further penetrate new markets and demonstrates to our customers that we are committed to complete customer satisfaction."
Skyworks utilizes a world-class quality management system model, consistent processes and products, and continuously audits and improves quality procedures. All of these elements lead to clear quality objectives and targets across the company.
