Chip and component developer CST Global Ltd. has appointed John Kane as quality and supply chain manager.
Kane is responsible for the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) at its site in Blantyre, Glasgow, and reports to the senior management team. The QMS scope includes all 3- and 4-in. wafer fabrication and test processes and is also a requirement for supplying customers operating in the data center, cloud, and telecommunications markets.
“ISO 9001:2015 is the highest quality standard available for company processes,” Kane said. “It impacts the entire business, and it requires all staff to take responsibility for their individual part in the process. My role includes developing our existing business systems and processes through continuous improvement, which I will extend to our key subcontractors. I will also maintain the management, production, and test processes necessary for improved communication and control, both within and outside the company. It is a complex and competitive market with an integrated supply chain, so I must also take responsibility for business risk management. The effective implementation of ISO 9001:2015 gives our customers total confidence in the quality of our products.”
Kane brings more than 20 years of semiconductor experience to CST Global in quality, engineering, management, and commercial roles. His quality management experience includes supplier, product, and customer quality process implementation to exacting AS9100 and TS16949 standards. He is also ISO9001:2015 lead auditor-qualified and has led cross-functional teams for continuous improvement, process qualification, new product integration, and production transfer projects in Tier 1, semiconductor, and electronics manufacturing companies. He has also held senior quality, engineering, and account management positions in Spirit Aerosystems, Jabil, Sumco Europe Sales, MEMC UK, EKC Technology, and Motorola. He holds a degree in applied physics and semiconductor electronics.
CST Global, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sivers IMA Holding, develops, manufactures, and sells cutting-edge chips, components, modules, and subsystems based on proprietary advanced semiconductor technology in microwave, millimeter wave, and optical semiconductors.READ MORE
