News Release -
ON Semiconductor Works to Secure Supply Chain Against Terrorism; Company Partners with U.S. Government to Enhance Security of Shipping Operations
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 4, 2003--ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq:
ONNN) today announced that it has earned a Customs-Trade Partnership
Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification from the U.S. Bureau of
Customs and Border Protection.
The U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection last year
established C-TPAT to build cooperative relationships with industries
that strengthen supply chain and border security. To attain the
certification, companies must perform an assessment of their supply
chain and establish security measures to protect the international
shipment of their products.
ON Semiconductor has eight manufacturing facilities, eight design
centers and numerous sales and support centers positioned around the
world to serve the global electronics industry. To fuel this expansive
manufacturing network, the company manages a sophisticated supply
chain that is in constant motion -- 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The non-stop nature of its international business led the company to
become an early entrant into the C-TPAT program.
"Securing our supply chain is an operational imperative and the
measures we put in place as part of the C-TPAT certification provide
us with additional security to address the changing geopolitical
situation," said Bill George, ON Semiconductor senior vice president
of operations. "Partnering with the customs service is the right thing
to do and enables us to bring additional strength to a critical part
of our business."
