Nov. 11, 2016 - Omega Engineering’s global headquarters now have a brand new home. The company has moved to a high-tech facility in Norwalk, Conn., which it says “represents a major transition” after being headquartered for five decades in Stamford, Conn. The move coincides with the recent appointment of Joe Vorih as president.

“These exciting twin developments are ushering in a new era for the firm — an era that’s deeply rooted in Omega’s rich, pioneering history,” said a statement from the company.

Omega Engineering founder Betty Ruth Hollander, a mother of four children, started the firm at her kitchen table in 1962. “The fact that the company was initially staffed solely by women was a rarity at a time when women often faced great workplace obstacles,” noted the company. Since then, it has grown from manufacturing a single product line of thermocouples to a manufacturer and supplier of process measurement and control products.

The new corporate office is located in a five-storey, 412,000-square-foot building in a busy Norwalk retail and commercial area. The open floor plan is designed with collaborative workspaces, where employees can take advantage of the latest technological advances, said company representatives. Facilities include a cafeteria, fitness centre, picnic areas and shuttle service to nearby train stations.

“We’re extremely excited about this next step in the evolution of our company, but our guiding principle remains unchanged. We’re absolutely committed to provide the very best instrumentation products and customer service,” said Vorih. “This has been the building block of our success over the last five decades, and will remain our top priority in the years to come. Fresh leadership and new facilities will ultimately help us serve our customers better as we expand our product lines and enhance our service systems.”

Today, Omega offers more than 100,000 products and primarily sells them directly to buyers. “The depth of expertise in this highly specialized industry allows the company to offer an extremely high level of technical support and customization,” said company representatives.
