Stamford, CT – Instrumentation manufacturer Omega Engineering was recently honoured with an outstanding achievement award for its Class 10 clean room facility in Bridgeport, NJ. The facility has nearly 300 employees and manufactures thin film technology used to make temperature, pressure and other process control devices.
Having a Class 10 clean room enables Omega to develop and manufacture very sophisticated process control sensors, says Jim Ferguson, VP of the company’s instruments and controls division. “Basically, we are at a level where we could create microprocessors such as those used in a computer and created by companies such as Intel,” he adds.
The award was presented to Omega by the Gloucester County Board of Freeholders for its outstanding contribution to the economic development of the tri-county region of Southern New Jersey. The company was praised for its contribution “to the technical infrastructure of Gloucester County through the manufacture of sophisticated, customized products for measurement and temperature control for over 20 years.”
In addition, the award recognized the company’s creation of over 100,000 different products and ownership of 100 patents. The clean room technology, as well as the company’s plans to construct another building, were cited as indications of the company’s continued expansion and investment in the economic development of the region.
