Omron’s Commitment to Health Care in Singapore

The core business of Omron revolves around the commitment to improve people’s lives as well as ensure a better society.

Omron was founded by Kazuma Tateisi back in 1933 as Tateisi Electric Manufacturing Co., until 1990 when the company rebranded as Omron. From the beginning, Omron focused on producing innovative medical equipment for health monitoring, including the following:

  • Thermometers

Today, Omron is still the leading brand in the market with more products that have become every family’s health care essentials:

  • Respiratory Therapy
  • Temperature Measurement

Omron’s first technology development was Mr Tateisi’s X-Ray photography timer that was effectively operated at an unprecedented speed 1/20 of a second. The inspiration behind his innovation came from the Founder’s x-ray salesman suggestion. His product was built and tested at Nissei Hospital in Osaka, based on the final prototype that Mr Tateisi provided. He then sent it to Dai Nippon X-ray Manufacturing Co., and the legacy of Omron began right there.
