About Us

Our promise is to make work safe. We are your partner company for workplace safety in the electrical industry. We develop the most modern products for testing in electrical high- and medium-voltage installations as well as for the workplace safety of all those working with hazardous electrical voltages. For this reason, installation work on live systems is made safer with our intelligent safety systems. We take pride in refining our products yet further and accelerating the rate of innovation. We are never satisfied with the status quo; we constantly look for new solutions and improve our products.

Building excellence through teamwork. Our employees are experts in different fields, but they all share a common goal: to make working with electricity every day even safer. As part of the global OMICRON Group we leverage the benefits associated with being part of a large company, but are still able to shape our own area of responsibility with the independent character of a start-up. Our motto is “Break the rules…innovate!”. We give creative ideas the freedom to come to life, develop new product components, and put our theories to the test. Innovation and teamwork are our core competencies that allow us to successfully implement customer requirements.

Quality and Innovation

Innovation is in our DNA. Every project starts with our curiosity to discover something new. We put our heads together, challenge existing solutions, design and simulate new solutions, build prototypes and test them, optimize and develop. We are pioneers who are confident enough to tackle new subject areas and never stop developing further. Our motto is, and always has been, “Break the rules…innovate!”. As an interdisciplinary team, the expertise within our company focuses on software, hardware, and textiles. We also work together with innovative partner companies, e.g. Texible GmbH and zaza Textillösungen GmbH. In our laboratories we test, sew, press, measure, solder, and calibrate. We use agile project management methods such as SCRUM to incorporate the requirements of our customers into the development process as quickly as possible.

The customer is king. We firmly believe that our customers have the best idea of how we can support them in their day-to-day work. That’s why we develop our solutions in close collaboration with customers and place them center stage: what does a typical working day look like for the customer? What functionality is needed? We test in the field, and integrate the customer feedback into our product development. This allows us to develop disruptive solutions for current customer problems and wishes.

Quality by intelligence. We used a unique combination of our interdisciplinary team, agile project management methods and constant customer feedback in order to implement the high-quality level for OMICRON products for the COMPANO 100 as well. This strategy turned out to be successful in responding to changes innovatively and to respond to the needs of the market quickly. The devices themselves are tested in automated environments in order to ensure high quality in the long term. OMICRON also offers state-accredited calibration services in accordance with ISO / IEC 17025.
ANGEL has allowed us to combine electronics and textiles.  Numerous patents in the field of smart textiles highlight our passion for innovation, culminating in receiving the 2020/2021 Special Innovation Award from the Austrian Consumer Research Institute (ÖGVS). All of our products are TÜV-tested, and the electronic components are developed in compliance with the latest standards. We also hold ISO 9001:2015 certification.

Sustainability and Environmental Protection

Change the world for the better. Our daily activities affect the natural environment – be it our product development, our office facilities, or business travel. Our overriding objective is, therefore, to minimize the negative impact our activities may have on the world around us, and to encourage our customers and suppliers to do the same. Regard for the environment is part of our corporate mission and for that reason, we consider the environment in every stage of product development and in our daily actions. We are ISO 9001:2015-certified.

Regard for the environment starts in the morning. We contribute towards the OMICRON Mobility Group to encourage the use of environmentally friendly and healthy means of transport. The group’s activities are entirely voluntary and have the goal of motivating our employees to adopt a sustainable approach to their use of transport. Employees whose daily commute is deemed to be environmentally friendly are rewarded with Eco Points. These can be exchanged for vouchers to be spent for public transport tickets or bicycle equipment, for example. The company supports using public transport whenever possible. We also have several company bicycles, which everyone is free to use. In addition, the company provides and pays for an annual check-up of our team members’ privately-owned bicycles.

Sustainability in our processes. We have a clear commitment to our location in Salzburg. We, therefore, cooperate with local partners to strengthen local small businesses and minimize transport routes. We try to reuse all our materials and minimize waste which is why we opted for eco-cotton as the fabric for our ANGEL solution.

Bee responsible. We have installed several beehives on the roof of our building in Salzburg. We look after the hives and contribute to biodiversity in the city. We also take care of our team and look after our wellbeing in terms of the benefits we offer, by providing organic fruit for snacking, yogurt, height-adjustable workplaces, or plants to clean the air. Our campus provider Techno-Z supports us in realizing our vision.
