Electro Dynamics Crystal Inc. (EDC) was started in 1963 to produce high volumes of quartz crystals for a variety of applications for the consumer electronics and automotive industries. In 1992, in response to market demand, EDC began offering crystals for thin film deposition monitoring. As a result of this new offering EDC became a vendor to INFICON, Inc. The partnership between EDC and INFICON continued to strengthen over the years and culminated in INFICON, Inc. acquiring EDC in 2006. The newly acquired company was incorporated as INFICON EDC, Inc.

Prior to acquisition by INFICON, EDC maintained high standards for quality. This focus on quality compliments, and is in compliance with, the INFICON quality commitment.

Some of the major milestones demonstrating INFICON EDC’s quality commitment are:

  • 1994: 100% clean room manufacturing process
  • 1996: Certification to ISO 9002
  • 2003: Certification to ISO 9001:2000
  • 2008: Certification to ISO 9001:2008
  • 2015: Recertification to ISO 9001:2015
  • 2015 Certification to ISO 14001
