MOBILE POWER FOR INDUSTRY AND MEDICINE
Omnitron Griese GmbH celebrates company anniversary
40 years of expertise in mobile power supply
Since its founding in 1977, Omnitron Griese GmbH has been selling quality products in Germany and Europe from its headquarters in Schlangenbad near Wiesbaden. Today the company is much more than a supplier of semiconductors, batteries and rechargeable batteries: Omnitron also takes over the development and supply chain management for national and international customers and supplies perfectly adapted products for demanding applications with a wide range of uses. In August 2017, the system integrator celebrated its 40th anniversary.

TRANSFORMATION FROM SEMICONDUCTOR DISTRIBUTOR TO PROVIDER OF INTEGRATED SYSTEM SOLUTIONS
Product diversification with digital radio relay technology
In its four decades of existence, the Rheingau-based company has transformed itself from a semiconductor distributor to a provider of integrated system solutions with three sites. Omnitron Griese GmbH was able to secure and permanently expand its market share in a wide range of industries such as the packaging of battery and rechargeable battery packs and digital radio relay technology with a broad portfolio of precise, reliable and durable products.
For example, more than 200 different customised product variants for mobile power supply from the production of the internationally positioned specialist are in use worldwide. From small to large rechargeable battery packs with accessories, Omnitron produces and delivers in series and according to customer requirements. The company has made a name for itself especially in the field of medical technology with intelligent solutions for network-independent use.
Omnitron started simultaneously planning and installing radio relay systems in 1993. Since then, more than 2,000 installations have been carried out at renowned customers.This way Omnitron was able to confirm and deepen its orientation as a system integrator and also convince with its service strength. Sustainability, reliability and short response times are just some of the aspects with which Omnitron satisfies its customers in the long term.
As part of this strategy, which the company consistently pursues, it is constantly expanding its market presence.
FUTURE MARKET AND EXPERT KNOWLEDGE
In its anniversary year, Omnitron Griese GmbH presents itself as one of the largest European manufacturers of batteries, and rechargeable battery packs. The highly specialised products cover a wide range of applications within the growth market of E-mobility. Omnitron's expert team also regularly participates as discussion partners and speakers in industry-specific forums and publishes articles on topics such as mobile power, approvals, security and new technologies.
New competence centre in Hilchenbach
In 2016, the new 10,000 square meter competence centre was occupied after a construction period of only ten months. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary celebration, Omnitron presented the new location to customers and suppliers.
Apart from sales, technical project management, development and quality control, the warehouse and production have been given new premises here. An experimental and test laboratory as well as a training centre were newly established at the site.
As early as 2016, the employees of Omnitron Griese GmbH had the opportunity to present their new place of work to their relatives as part of a family day.
1977 – 2017: On 18 August, Omnitron celebrated its 40th anniversary.
Now Omnitron also opened its doors to business partners and companions of the company. Company founder and managing partner Reinhardt Robert Griese and his son, managing director Adrian Robert Griese, as well as authorised signatory and branch manager Andreas Schmidt presented the past, present and future of Omnitron Griese GmbH on this occasion.
In recognition of the company's anniversary, the managing director of the Siegen Chamber of Industry and Commerce handed over a certificate of honour during the festivities for 40 years of successful entrepreneurial activity.
