OCZ Technology's New State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Facility Achieves ISO 9001: 2008

OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that the company's new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Taipei, Taiwan has achieved ISO 9001: 2008 certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This independent certification from ISO demonstrates OCZ's commitment to quality and reinforces that the company's newly consolidated manufacturing facility has met ISO's stringent qualifications.

The ISO 9001: 2008 standard was established by the ISO governing board and has become the most comprehensive standard on quality management and practices worldwide. It is designed to enable companies with a set of principles that ensure a consistent and systematic approach to manufacturing while providing high product quality and reliability, which in turn, translates to customer satisfaction.

"We are very pleased to have obtained ISO 9001: 2008 certification demonstrating that our manufacturing processes not only follow rigorous quality standards, but they are consistent with leading companies worldwide," said Jason Ruppert, Sr. Vice President of Operations for OCZ Technology. "This ISO certification provides our OEM customers with a validation that our manufacturing processes deliver high quality, reliable products, and a heightened user experience."

OCZ's SSD products are assembled and tested in the new Taipei manufacturing facility. With this new state of the art facility, OCZ's manufacturing capacity has increased to accommodate demand for both enterprise and client OCZ SSDs, and with ISO 9001: 2008 certification, expands OCZ's ability to manufacture the highest quality products that customers expect.

OCZ to me still seems like a shady company.

News?

I work at a po-dunk little manufacturing outfit. We've got less than 50 employees (of which only one has "quality" as their main purview) at any one of our facilities. We've had ISO 9001:2000, and 9001:2008 for the last eight years and change.

OCZ has a quality assurance department, and they've gotten one of the most basic quality assurance qualifications possible. Wake me when I should give a hoot.

Sure, that's why two out of every three OCZ SSDs are DOA or die within a month...

This is utter crap. Their quality has gone to absolute shit in the last year or two so they're trying everything they can to reassure the public that they're a high-quality company.
It's not fooling me one bit and I hope it doesn't fool anyone else.
Stay away from their SSDs. Their power supplies? Buy them, but don't trust your high-end hardware to them. RAM? Does OCZ even still make RAM?
Point is, this is nothing but a PR stunt to try and recover some business losses. Once upon a time, OCZ was a great company. Now not so much.

The fact that they just got it means... They didn't have a 9001 certificate before. That might explain a couple things. :shadedshu :cough: Vertex2/3 :cough:
OCZ has been dead to me ever since the software for the Synapse Cache wiped my hard drive's partition table.

Nope. I doubt that they'll be making PSUs much longer.

Ever been through the ISO audit process? No, that was rhetorical. Had you been through one you'd know that this isn't PR.

1) Full documentation of the process.
2) Calibration plan and records for all process related equipment/tooling.
3) PM plan.
4) Well developed action and response structure.
5) Documented QA process for RMAs and other defective goods.

*Yeah, this glosses over the actual requirements, but it's what is important for this thought pattern.


The process is not simple, and requires development of enough paperwork to make you want to remove your writing/typing arm/hand with a rusty spoon.


This said, it is still basically the lowest grade of quality certification out there. Any company big enough to have production outside of the country they primarily serve should have an ISO 9001:2008 certification before they get invited to the party, not be announcing that they finally got one, but only for their new facility... At least there's paper documentation to trace all those failures...:cry:

You will probably find that their other manufacturing facilities already have the accreditation and the anouncement is because this is a new facility and is also completed the accreditation.

This say's nothing about other accreditations they have or do not have though people do like to speculate when they have no real facts on matters.

To the person who said 2 of 3 die I would rather not have to sit here and waste my time reading drivel from the likes of you as that is beyond an excageration. Plainly put if you don't like the company that's fine, but don't go pulling stats out of your ass cause you feel like it .

- Intel 0.1% (as against 0.3%)
- Crucial 0.8% (as against 1.9%)
- Corsair 2.9% (as against 2.7%)
- OCZ 4.2% (as against 3.5%)

Some numbers I found.. http://www.behardware.com/articles/843-7/components-returns-rates-5.html
