OMEGA Engineering relocates world headquarters

Nov. 11, 2016

OMEGA Engineering Inc., a global manufacturer and supplier of process measurement and control products, announced it is now operating out of a new world headquarters in Norwalk, CT, after having for five decades been headquartered in Stamford, CT. The move coincides with the recent appointment of Joe Vorih as president.

Fifty years ago, OMEGA Engineering was a small privately held company that was woman-owned and operated. 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.

From those roots OMEGA has carved out a unique place in the industry. Thanks to the hard work and unceasing dedication of Hollander and her pioneering staff, OMEGA Engineering has grown from a small-family owned catalog company specializing in thermocouples, to a global provider of thousands of measurement and control products.

Acquired by Spectris plc in 2011, OMEGA today offers more than 100,000 state-of-the-art products and primarily sells them directly to buyers. The depth of expertise in this highly specialized industry allows the company to offer a high level of technical support and customization.

The move to OMEGA Engineering’s new facility is symbolic of the next step in this company’s journey. The new corporate office is located in a five-story, 412,000-square-foot building in one of Norwalk’s busiest retail and commercial areas. The open floor plan is designed with collaborative workspaces, where employees can take advantage of the latest technological advances. Facilities include a cafeteria, fitness center, 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.”

OMEGA has offices in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, and operates manufacturing facilities in New Jersey, California, Ohio, and the United Kingdom.
