Solayer achieves ISO 9001:2015 Certification



Solayer GmbH is proud to announce that we are ISO 9001:2015 certified from July 2017. Our quality management system was successfully evaluated and certified for standardized procedures, processes and systems engineering for thin-film and nanotechnology.


2016 was an eventful year for Solayer. The company opened a new facility in Karlstein near Frankfurt-am-Main in order to meet customers’ requirements. With customer satisfaction as the main objective, Solayer is keen to stay highly committed in delivering superior quality products and services to all our customers.

With the expansion of operations, it became necessary to standardize the processes at both technology centers – Dresden and Karlstein - to consolidate our efforts effectively. In order to comply with the business processes of our customers, all employees in finance, purchase, sales, production and HR were extensively trained at all global sites. We sincerely believe the data-based monitoring and decision-making of the procedures will significantly improve our project completion and reduce the delivery time to customers. Although the products are manufactured at different locations, the standardized processes with continuous improvement will ensure very good control of the quality of our products and services. Through the newly-deployed quality management system, we are closer to realizing our dream of manufacturing the products near our client locations. We are confident that the overall process integration and interaction will help to improve our efficiency, and thereby transfer the cost-saving benefits to the customer. In addition to the quality management certification, SAP was implemented to allow us a quick adaption to the most advanced processes in manufacturing around the world. Solayer is now well-positioned to serve customers with single equipment as well as customers with large volume requirements.                                                                                                                 

Overall, every department was actively involved in building the quality system. As a result of the hard work, we are happy to share that Solayer was approved by TÜV Nord in July 2017 to work according to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system. We are proud that ISO procedures have become a vivid part of our daily working lives. As we look back, we see one dense year full of positive energies and insights. As we look into the future, we see highly-satisfied customers of Solayer.
