C-MAC Microcircuits ULC has received the "Grande Mention" award for Manufacturing Quality in the province of Quebec, Canada. The award is part of the distinctions from "Le Grand Prix de la Qualité du Québec" (GPQQ).
"This reward is the result of more than 30 years in servicing high-reliability markets with state-of-the-art manufacturing processes in a zero-defect, lean culture environment. The root of this success resides in our employees, fostering continuous improvement and customer satisfaction throughout today’s fast and complex product life cycles," says Alain Breton, operations director of the C-MAC Canadian facility.
The GPQQ criteria for the award compare favorably to internationally renowned awards such as the Deming in Japan, the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in the United States or the European Quality Award.
