Omron has invested in its UK-based Software Product Centre with a move to new offices on the Solent Business Park near Fareham, Hampshire. The European centre provides automation software to support Omron products globally.
Omron's new office houses both the Software Product Development and Software Marketing teams, and has been appointed to a high standard, reflecting the Omron brand identity; the office features a plaza, flexible training room and a video conference room. Previously the Software Product Centre was based in Fareham, and the new offices are 500m from the previous site.
The new offices represent recognition from Omron Europe of the importance of software in automation. The Software Product Centre is an Omron global centre of excellence, with software teams developing configuration, programming and visualisation software. It contributes to the progression of leading products such as CX-One. This allows users to build, configure and program a host of devices such as PLCs, HMIs and motion control systems and networks using just one software package. CX-One is part of Omron's Smart Platform, based around the customer advantages of 'One software, one connection, one minute.'
