ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving energy efficiency innovations, is pleased to announce that its North America manufacturing facilities in Pocatello, Idaho, and Gresham, Oregon, have received a superior security rating in an annual vulnerability assessment by the U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Security Service.
A “superior” rating is reserved for contractors who have consistently and fully implemented the requirements of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) in an effective fashion resulting in a superior security posture, compared with other contractors of similar size and complexity. The facility must have documented procedures that heighten the security awareness of the employees and that foster a spirit of cooperation within the security community. This rating requires a sustained high level of management support for the security program and the absence of any serious security issues.
“Having a superior rating at both of our North American production operations assures our customers that regardless of the project or technology, their designs are safe with ON Semiconductor,” said Gary Pugsley, Global Security manager and Corporate Facility Security Officer (FSO). “Whether customers choose the trusted flow, classified or unclassified, or customary business flows, they know with confidence that their products are secure in our facilities. Combining these two security ratings with the fact that the company is also accredited for Trusted Design, Foundry and Broker operations by the Defense Micro Electronics Activity substantiates ON Semiconductor as the primary source of choice for customers in this arena.”
