Omnica was founded in 1984 by Earl Robinson and Rex Bare. Their goal was to create a design and engineering firm which offered all the core services necessary to develop medical products at one location – a comprehensive design and engineering resource. Today, we are one of the premier product development firms on the West coast. Our specialty is product design and development of Class I, II, and III medical devices, IVD Diagnostics, complex Healthcare Devices and Laboratory Instrumentation.
Most of our business originates from referrals and returning customers.
A number of firms rely on us as their design and engineering "hired guns". Some of these relationships span multiple product generations over many years. Returning customers from all-sized companies, venture-funded start-ups to large multi-national organizations, repeatedly state that their projects could not have been completed without our involvement.
High-tech tools and resources
When you visit our 25,000 SF facility in Irvine, California, you will see clean and organized workspaces, an impressive collection of high-tech tools, and equipment generally found only in specialized service bureaus or high-end shops. Tools and assets give us the ability to move quickly and build prototypes of everything we design, but it's our people who make Omnica a unique product development resource.
It's our employees who make the difference.
Everyone at Omnica, all 29 of us, are full-time employees (we rarely need consultants), and most have been here over 15 years. Groups who have worked together over a long period of time are comfortable anticipating each other's needs, which give them the ability to leverage strengths and limit surprises. The unwritten information they share from collective years of experience translates to a working synergy that continues to improve and refine.
Earl, Omnica's president, makes it a priority to maintain an ensemble of individuals with exceptional traits: wide-ranging experience, an ability to work in small groups or independently, and self-starters who can undertake various projects concurrently. These are the people who work at Omnica. Combine these qualities with the entire range of specialties required to develop high tech products, and you have defined an organization that can accomplish a great deal in a short period of time.
