Rudolph Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RTEC) announced today that it has earned
certification to ISO 9001:2008 for its quality management system and shared
services corporate departments at three of its major business unit locations.
The rigorous certification process reinforces the Company’s commitment to
providing the best quality products and services to its customers.

“Our customers are highly sophisticated, producing cutting-edge technology for
next generation electronic devices,” said Paul McLaughlin, chairman and chief

capital equipment and process control software used for inspection, metrology,
yield analysis and control of semiconductor and related device manufacturing
processes. The Company will pursue ISO 9001:2008 registration for its new
lithography systems group in 2014.
