Solyndra Inc., a manufacturer of cylindrical solar photovoltaic systems for commercial and industrial rooftops, has earned ISO 9001:2008 certification, an internationally recognized standard issued to organizations with a quality management system. The certificate was authorized by TUV Rheinland.
‘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,’ says Ben Bierman, Solyndra's executive vice president of operations and engineering.
ISO 9001:2008 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. Certification to the standard is voluntary, and organizations must complete a rigorous auditing process by a third-party registrar, Solydra says.
