Omega Engineering Relocates World HQ, Appoints President
Omega Engineering relocated its world headquarters to a high-tech facility in Norwalk, Conn. It had been based in Stamford, Conn., for five decades.
Located in a five-story, 412,000 ft2 building, the new corporate office incorporates an open floor plan designed with collaborative workspaces. Facilities include a cafeteria, fitness center, picnic areas and shuttle service to nearby train stations.
The move coincides with the recent appointment of Joe Vorih as president. Vorih's priority will be to transform Omega from a direct provider of process sensors to a web-based global partner for complete process measurement and control solutions. As president of Clarcor Engine Mobile Solutions, Vorih transformed the organization with a focused effort to serve the needs of OEMs, launched several breakthrough programs and opened a new manufacturing and sales presence in India. He previously served as senior vice president and chief commercial officer at Stanadyne, where he oversaw the successful shift of the company from a traditional equipment supplier to a broad technology solutions partner.
Omega Engineering has grown from a small family-owned catalog company specializing in thermocouples to a global provider of measurement and control products. Acquired by Spectris plc in 2011, the company currently offers more than 100,000 products and primarily sells them directly to buyers.
