FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hauppauge, New York, October 17th, 2017 – The Omnicon Group, Inc., an industry leader in reliability engineering consulting and services, has confirmed today that the ownership of Omnicon will transfer to Spectris plc, a global, leading supplier of productivity-enhancing products, software and services. It will be integrated with HBM Prenscia, a growing global leader in providing technology and engineering software products and services for reliability, durability and performance analyses within the Spectris Test and Measurement segment. Located in Hauppauge, New York and established in 1984, Omnicon has become a leading provider of custom engineering consultancy services to support the design of reliable electronic and embedded software systems for high-reliability and safety-critical applications to major “blue chip” customers including aerospace, transportation, defense, telecommunications, medical device and industrial.
Omnicon is a growing business and has further opportunities to accelerate this growth as its knowledge and technology enables companies to improve product reliability, enhance their productivity and improve their return on investment. Omnicon’s success can be attributed to its continued focus on providing innovative, high quality and technologically advanced solutions to its clients through a highly talented workforce.
HBM Prenscia is a well-respected and long-established supplier of reliability and durability software and solutions. This transaction will strengthen HBM Prenscia’s growing business within Spectris’ Test and Measurement segment and will build on the strong brand recognition and reputation of both Omnicon and HBM Prenscia – including the nCode and ReliaSoft brands. The business will benefit from the investment and global network that will come from being part of HBM Prenscia and the Spectris organization. Headquartered and listed in the UK, the parent organization Spectris has annual revenues of over $1.7 billion and employs approximately 9,000 people in more than 30 countries.
