OMRON opens regional head office in India

January 13, 2012

Kyoto, Japan -- OMRON Corporation (TSE: 6645, ADR: OMRNY) today announced the commencement of operations at their newly established regional head office, the "OMRON Management Centre of India," in the north Indian city of Gurgaon. The new office, the first regional head office set up by OMRON to oversee operations in a single country, will be responsible for accelerating OMRON's business growth throughout India.

The regional head office will provide OMRON Group companies operating in India dedicated financial, legal, and IT support; human resources support helping to deal with the urgent issue of local personnel recruitment and staff training; reinforcement of the OMRON brand in India; and public relations, communications, and CSR functions focussed on contributing to Indian society.

OMRON Corporation currently has regional head offices responsible for managing operations in the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Greater China regions. Up till now, the "OMRON Management Centre of Asia Pacific" located in Singapore has been responsible for the management of operations in India. However with the positioning of India as a crucial operational hub in OMRON's new emerging market strategy, the establishment of a dedicated local head office was deemed necessary to help strengthen business operations in the country more swiftly.

OMRON is currently moving rapidly to reinforce operations in India by increasing the number of industrial automation and healthcare equipment sales bases and boosting the number of system engineers and sales personnel. The establishment of the new dedicated head office will allow each OMRON company to not only obtain the head office support they require without delay, but also allow them to focus their efforts on their core business activities, thereby enabling OMRON to further accelerate its growth in India.

With the implementation of OMRON's new 10-year strategy "Value Generation 2020" in July 2011, increased emphasis has been given to achieving growth in emerging markets such as China, Brazil, and India. One of the primary goals of Value Generation 2020 is to achieve annual sales exceeding 1 trillion Japanese yen. In order to achieve this OMRON is aiming to increase annual sales in emerging markets like India 240% to 400 billion yen by 2020.


Headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, OMRON Corporation is a global leader in the field of automation. Established in 1933, and headed by President Yoshihito Yamada, OMRON has more than 36,000 employees in over 35 countries working to provide products and services to customers in a variety of fields including industrial automation, electronic components, social systems, healthcare, and the environment. The company has regional head offices in Singapore (Asia Pacific), Shanghai (Greater China), Amsterdam (Europe, Africa, and the Middle East), Chicago (the Americas), and Gurgaon (India).
