Omron founder Kazuma Tateisi, a brilliant inventor and determined salesman, tried his hand at a knife-grinder and trouser press before launching Tateisi Electric Manufacturing Co. in 1933 based on a need by hospitals for faster X-ray timers. The three employee staffed factory grew into Omron Corporation, today a $4.5 billion global leader in sensing and control components with over 23,000 employees spread out across 35 countries. With a global reputation for unsurpassed quality and reliability in their switches and relays, Omron is now setting new standards worldwide.
