Omega Engineering Inc., a global manufacturer and supplier of process measurement and control products, is moving its headquarters to a new facility in Norwalk, Conn., from Stamford, which has been the company’s headquarters for 50 years.

Omega’s Norwalk corporate office is located in a 5-story, 412,000-sq-ft building. 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.

The opening of Omega’s facility coincides with Joe Vorih’s appointment as president. Vorih’s priority will be to transform Omega from the best-known direct provider of process sensors into a Web-based global partner for complete process measurement and control solutions, including innovative wireless and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-ready offerings, the company said in a written release.

"Industrial customers today have access to an exponentially-increasing range of new sensing and control technologies. With wireless sensing and cloud-based solutions, what was not possible to measure in the past is quickly becoming attractive," Vorih said.
