Safety Excellence: Exyte Wins ‘Excellent Contractor’ Award from GCLSemi, China
Exyte, the global leader in the design, engineering and delivery of high-tech facilities, plants and factories, was presented the “Excellent Contractor” award by GCLSemi. The award is in recognition of Exyte’s achievement of 800,000 safety work hours during the construction of GCLSemi’s silicon wafer manufacturing cleanroom project in Xuzhou, China.
Exyte led the design, construction and commissioning of the project as the key contractor for the 25,100m2 silicon wafer manufacturing cleanroom project, which included the cleanroom as well as the mechanical, electrical and process distribution and plant systems. Leveraging on Exyte’s 50-year track record in delivering state-of-the-art controlled environments, Exyte met all critical specifications, including air temperature, humidity and Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) control of the cleanroom. Upon completion, the facility will manufacture up to 300,000 12-inch silicon wafers each month.
“Exyte executed the entire project with utmost professionalism. Their project management approach and highly experienced team gave us the assurance that the project will be delivered on time. The Exyte team presented advanced and state-of-the-art ideas and solutions, and they responded to project matters in a timely manner. I am very satisfied with the work that the Exyte team delivered,” said Mr. Zheng, Xiongjiu, General Manager of GCLSemi. Mr. Zheng also added that the Exyte team ensured that quality and safety were never compromised – they raised standards of safety at the project site and were able to influence other contractors to adopt safety as a value.
“The “Excellent Contractor” award from GCLSemi is truly an honor and testament to the outstanding engineering services and expertise of our teams, as well as our commitment to safety, on-time and on-budget delivery of projects for our clients. This is our first project with GCLSemi and I am confident that we will continue to achieve many more milestones together,” said Frank Lorenzetto, Managing Director of Exyte China.
“A safe project is the result of good planning, disciplined execution and a committed team. With these factors our projects are safe and successful. In order for us to deliver a project successfully and safely, it takes a world-class project management approach as well as safety values and behavior that are strongly embedded across the organization,” added Lorenzetto.
Exyte’s in-house safety program - “Incident-Free Workplace” (IFW) reinforces safety as a core value. IFW is embedded across all aspects of the organization, and is embraced by all of Exyte’s stakeholders including its partners and suppliers.
