June 3, 2016, Kyoto, Japan –– OMRON Corporation (President & CEO: Yoshihito Yamada [TSE: 6645]), today announced the completion of the sale of OMRON Oilfield and Marine, Inc. ("OOM") to Schlumberger, the global leader in oilfield services, as part of OMRON's business transformation plan. OOM has a high market share in inverter control systems for drilling equipment used by customers in the oil-drilling sector of North America's oil and gas industry and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of OMRON Electronics LLC ("OEI").
