One of the best examples of the economic recovery on Long Island is The Omnicon Group, a specialized engineering firm which recorded a 100% increase in new sales during the first quarter of 2004 as compared to first quarter of 2003.
According to company president Scott B. Abrams, Omnicon posted more than $4 million in new business during the first quarter, with almost half of that amount generated by Long Island companies.
“I believe we have definitely turned the corner on Long Island, certainly in the technology and engineering sectors,” Abrams said. He added that Omnicon, which develops software and performs sophisticated services including reliability, maintainability and safety engineering, has acquired new business in a number of industry sectors, including defense, communications, aviation, fire safety and others. Omnicon’s business approach continues to concentrate on opportunities that enable the development of core business. As a result of this business growth, Omnicon is expected to increase the workforce by more than 50% during the next 12-month period, further aiding in the economic recovery of Long Island.
Some of the Long Island companies that signed new contracts in 2004 with Omnicon are Parker Aerospace, Telephonics, Firecom, BAE Systems and Symbol Technologies. Additional new business was generated by BF Goodrich, Avaya, Hamilton Sundstrand and Parker California.
Founded in 1984, The Omnicon Group is an engineering services company with international headquarters in Hauppauge, New York. Specializing in software, systems, reliability, safety and test equipment engineering, The Omnicon Group provides engineering services to companies in many industries including aerospace, communications, transportation and defense.
