Reading time ( words)

“I am pleased to announce the formal introduction of Omega EMS to the electronics design and manufacturing industry,” stated Chris Alessio, president and CEO. “We have been operating under the radar since company inception in 2015, it is time to raise the curtain and broadly express our compelling value proposition.” Omega just completed a stock swap merger with strategic alliance partner, Vitron Electronic Services on March 16th, coupled with momentum of continued YoY growth in excess of 100% over the past 5 years and on the heels of an asset purchase of Innerstep Manufacturing in early 2019.

Omega is now positioned within a 60k square foot platform at 5400 Hellyer Avenue in San Jose to offer the industry leading edge design capabilities coupled with PCBA & systems integration manufacturing, complete test solutions & valuable rework/repair/refurbishment flows.

“Our design methodology and capabilities which include PCB design, PCB layout, DFM, Component Engineering, Mechanical ID, Board bring-up, to name a few, allow Omega to provide key upstream solutions embedded within manufacturing mindsets. This creates product cleanliness for successful first pass manufacturing, all in timely design windows,” per Ian Grover, VP of engineering.

The facility utilizes: 7 SMT lines (4 Yamaha and 3 Fuji) incorporating SPI, AOI & Vitrox AXI within a standard flow, allows for over 30K square feet dedicated for systems integration and test activities (including reliability testing via burn-in, vibration, temp cycling & leak validation), electrical test via Spea flying probe, a full suite of dedicated functional test deployments, Onyx & VJ Summit mated with Dage 3D x-ray for rework & repair implementation/validation…and we are just getting started.

“I have built a machine here in Silicon Valley which can meet the needs of all electronic product requirements from start to finish. This machine now has added fuel via the combination of Omega’s vast customer relationships, engineering capabilities, and extreme energy, experience and passion within the EMS industry,” per Huan Tran, Omega chairman and Vitron founder (in 1985).

The company is powered by “Zeus,” a cloud based customized ERP system driven at the core via an SAP backbone.

“Given the vast capabilities, capitalization and facilities now inherent at Omega, we felt the need for an advanced ERP system to run our entire business. Zeus provides that one stop solution encompassing MRP, Finance/Accounting, MES/Shop floor control, Real-time WIP tracking and QMS data collection, and of course, Customer Portals,” stated Phil Aguiar, VP of operations.

“Our customers find the all in-house services extremely valuable for new product requirements and volume production. We continue to maintain our original DNA which centers on agility, flexibility, and extreme customer service. This is an exciting time for Omega and I am extremely happy to drive the customer engagements and future growth to meet our $100M plan,” stated Hassan Malak, VP of sales.

Omega holds key certifications including ISO9001, ISO13485, AS9100, ESD2020 and ITAR with others on the near-term horizon including AS9145, ISO/TS 16949, FDA 21 CFR 820.
