"One of Omron's key initiatives globally is to double the value of the company in the next three years," says Omron national distributor manager Joe Spedale. "Our plan is aggressive yet realistic, considering the breadth and depth of Omron's product line. Partnering with industry-leading companies like Kaman, with its very clear focus in the industrial MRO market, will take us a long way toward achieving our planned goals." That explains why Omron Electronics LLC (www.omron.com/oei) has named Kaman Industrial Technologies Corp. (www.kamandirect.com) a national distributor of its electronic sensors and industrial products. Kaman's 185 U.S. branch locations will be authorized to sell, within the continental U.S., Omron timers, counters, temperature controllers, power supplies, photoelectric sensors, proximity sensors, and limit switches.
