Canatu Achieves ISO 9001:2008 Certification

Canatu, the manufacturer of next generation transparent conductive films and touch sensors, is pleased to announce it has been awarded the International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 9001:2008 certification.

Canatu was audited and granted the certificate by DNV GL, a leading certification body in Finland. The ISO 9001:2008 award is a result of a year’s long work and commitment to streamline Canatu’s operations in order to guarantee exceptional quality of service.

“This certificate is something I am very proud of. This certificate is testament to our dedication to provide excellent service to our customers. To have our efforts be recognized by an external independent entity is wonderful.

Being heavily customer-focused, we understand the necessity to standardize our processes in order to ensure consistent and exceptional quality for our current and future customers”, says CEO, Risto Vuohelainen.

ISO 9001 is the world’s most widely recognized quality management standard. Certified organisations are required to demonstrate that they meet the regulatory requirements of the standard and apply the system effectively. Acting as a benchmark for quality, the ISO 9001 quality management system demands for continuous monitoring, assisting organisations to manage quality across all operations through defined processes.

Canatu, based in Helsinki, Finland, manufactures bendable and transparent conductive film optimised specifically for wearable, electronic touch screen devices and next generation foldable smart phones and tablets providing ultra-low reflectance to displays. Canatu’s films and touch sensors are based on a new state-of-the-art technology that utilises a new type of carbon nanomaterial. Canatu’s patented CNB™ (Carbon NanoBud®) products benefit from higher display contrast and ultra-low reflectance, a technology that is quickly revolutionizing the industry and rivalling more traditional ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) and metal mesh structures.
