Omega’s formatting technologies, including precision slitting, waterjet cutting, and 5-axis machining, along with ply cutting and kitting, complement Web’s industry leading formatting services. The Omega acquisition is part of Web’s global strategy to provide services and engineering to support aerospace customers’ demand for formatting and materials management services.
“The acquisition of Omega Systèmes is a textbook strategic fit, bringing together the premier US and EU formatters of advanced materials for aerospace,” says Web Industries CEO Mark Pihl. “Customers in Europe will soon have access to Web Industries’ technology, systems and scale to support large commercial programs and Web will have local production facilities to meet the demand of Europe’s largest aerospace manufacturers and suppliers. At the same time, many of Omega’s unique capabilities will benefit customers in the North American market.
“Omega Systèmes is a strong partner for Web Industries in terms of cultural fit, complementary product and market segment offerings, focus on R&D and geographical reach. We have much in common with Omega Systèmes and are convinced that we can strengthen each other. We are looking forward to growing Omega Systèmes together with Web Industries.”
