Omega Engineering Inc., headquartered in Stamford, Conn., opened a new office in Shanghai at the end of September to serve its customers in China and broaden its presence in the region.
Omega, which specializes in process measurement and control, was recently acquired by Spectris plc, a supplier of instrumentation and controls. With this change of leadership, the first order of business was to make Omega a strong force in China, according to an official announcement.
The company appointed Zhang Dou Ms. (Sharon Zhang) as the Omega Engineering General Manager of China. The Omega China business unit will have more than a dozen employees, including technical support engineers to offer customer service.
Omega says the late September grand opening of the Shanghai office was a major growth move for the company. By entering this new market, Omega said it hopes to spread its brand throughout China and become a well-known presence in the region for process measurement and control.
Omega also has sales and distribution offices in Canada, UK and Germany.
