Beneficiaries as diverse as energy supply companies, industrial concerns, and manufacturers of products for generating and distributing electrical energy all stand to gain from our efforts. All around the world, our customers trust our proven testing, diagnostic, and monitoring solutions.

OMICRON stands for innovation. Our pioneering solutions are the result of our natural curiosity and our ability to think outside of the box.

Our products and solutions are functional and precise, easy to use, and are manufactured with an extremely high level of quality.

Yet innovation not only applies to our technology – innovation can also be found in how we shape our working environment and work together as a team with partners and customers. We engage with our customers as equal partners; by sharing our knowledge and expertise, helping them with our solutions, and ensuring that they can rely on our comprehensive technical support, we can all grow together.

Our Culture: Trust and Open Communication

We firmly believe that people reach their greatest potential when they feel valued and have the freedom to develop and grow. Only people who enjoy what they are doing are capable of achieving the extraordinary.

We foster a working environment in which every member of the team is encouraged to take personal responsibility and complete their tasks independently. We value an atmosphere of mutual respect and open communication; an atmosphere in which colleagues with diverse personal backgrounds, nationalities, and experience can come together every day to produce innovative new ideas. 

All our offices and locations boast top-quality infrastructure and workplaces equipped with the latest technology. At the same time, we try to establish welcoming communal areas for conversations and meetings, for dialogue and communication.

Our Responsibility: Contributing To a Better World

For us, innovative spirit, success, and sustainability go hand in hand. We are successful precisely because we are sustainable.

OMICRON is providing financial support to the "Crossing Borders" association that helps fund projects for improving educational opportunities for children in disadvantaged regions. OMICRON staff are free to volunteer their assistance to these projects on their own time.

We take our social and ecological responsibilities as a successful commercial enterprise very seriously. Our approach to this includes designing company premises that are as sustainable as possible, organizing many of our events in compliance with "green standards" guidelines, and encouraging sustainable forms of transport and mobility. We are also working together with various educational institutions and numerous charitable initiatives.
