Diodes Incorporated has received the 'Manufacturing Site of the Year' award from the National Microelectronics Institute (NMI). The award was presented to the company at the NMI's prestigious annual awards dinner held in London.
Derek Boyd, CEO of the NMI said, The award this year has been revised to take into account the severe economic conditions currently facing the industry. We wanted to recognise organisations that have managed to innovate their way through the recession, through development of new products, new processes, operational efficiencies, cost reductions or a combination of all of these factors.

Diodes' wafer fab in Oldham was able to demonstrate a range of impressive achievements resulting in improved productivity, a reduction in carbon footprint of 30% and enhancements to process and product capabilities to access larger markets. Congratulations Diodes!

Mick Conlon, UK Operations Manager at Diodes said, In response to harsh global economic conditions, our UK manufacturing operation has had to undergo dramatic and radical change over the last 12 months. Thanks in no small part to the perseverance of the entire workforce in accepting change, we are now very well equipped to capitalise on the opportunities arising as we emerge from the downturn.

Commenting on the award, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Diodes, stated, I am very pleased to receive this award in recognition of the manufacturing excellence that has served as the cornerstone to Diodes' success over the years. I am particularly proud of our team in Oldham for their resiliency during the economic downturn that will contribute to our improved performance and profitable growth in the future.

In its 7th year, the NMI awards dinner attracted 300 guests from throughout the UK and around the world. A highlight of the evening was a keynote address from Anand Chandrasekher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel Corporation's Ultra Mobility Group.
