Dec 14, 2016

Omega Engineering reported Nov. 9 that it’s appointed Joe Vorih as president of the longtime designer, manufacturer and distributor of process measurement and control products. Vorih’s priority will be to transform Omega from a process sensors supplier into a web-based global partner for complete process measurement and control solutions, including innovative wireless and IIoT-ready offerings.

“Industrial customers today have access to an exponentially-increasing range of new sensing and control technologies,” says Vorih. “With wireless sensing and cloud-based solutions, what wasn’t possible to measure in the past is quickly becoming attractive. With our broad offering of sensing and control products, global technical support and focus on bringing them directly to customers online, Omega is uniquely positioned to be the preferred solutions partner in this exciting market.”
