About the Optoelectronic Manufacturing Corporation

Three decades of innovation

OMC is one of the longest established specialist manufacturers of optoelectronics in Europe. Our headquarters are in the UK and, since the company’s creation 1984, we've been manufacturing for a vast range of industries worldwide. Previously known as The Fibredata Group, we are accredited to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007, and are winners of the UK National Electronic Component Award for Innovation.

We are pioneers in the development, manufacture and application of cutting-edge LED technologies to the electronics and related industries, and we focus heavily on research & development, engineering and innovation. Our core markets have extremely high demands when it comes to quality, performance and engineering support and OMC's unparalleled commitment to these standards is recognised within the industry.

The company has four key manufacturing divisions:

  • Fibre Optics
  • LED Backlights and Lightguides
  • Discrete Optoelectronic Components
  • Semiconductor Lighting

OMC has established a wide-ranging, global customer base including such names as Sagem, Rolls-Royce, IBM, Alstom, CERN, Marconi and National Grid; and we span a wide range of industry sectors, including power distribution, lighting, petrochemical, medical, aerospace and defence. We also deal with departments in a number of the UK’s leading universities, and supply several public sector institutions such as the National Health Service and Ministry of Defence.

In applications where long-term performance and reliability are key you'll find our products; they're used daily and globally by millions of people, making their everyday lives safer and easier without them even realising it. When someone travels by road, rail, air or sea; when they work in industry or in research; when they make use of telecommunications, undergo medical care, or simply when they switch on the kettle in the morning, there’s a good chance that one of our products is helping to make it happen.

OMC is rated amongst the top echelons of UK businesses for fiscal stability. All the company’s assets, including site and equipment, are fully owned by OMC and the company has zero long-term debt. In recognition of the company's strong year-on-year fiscal performance, the directors of OMC are listed in the publication “Who’s Who of Britain’s Business Elite”. As a result of our strong fiscal standing, customers can be assured of a manufacturing partner who will be capable, effective, and with them for the long term.
