Omega Piezo Technologies, Inc.

A super-charged expansion for advanced manufacturing

 

The charge of piezoelectricity is crucial for countless applications in a wired world, and for today’s manufacturing, whether semiconductors, automotive or aerospace--for high-performance sensors, alarms and medical devices—this Pennsylvania manufacturer is the premiere choice for piezoelectric and ceramic products. 

When the company decided to expand with a new manufacturing facility, high standards were naturally important, so Omega Piezo looked for a location offering a skilled workforce, plus fast shipping to get products to market quickly. Company leaders liked the labor and location they found in Screven County. And they really liked the charged-up enthusiasm that greeted them.

“The Screven County Development Authority did an outstanding job putting together a great incentive package that was tailored to suit all of our needs,” says Dr. David Pickrell, Omega Piezo Technologies President. “They made our decision to come to Screven County an easy one.”

With the purchase of an existing building and world-class welcome from Screven County, the company has become an important part of the local manufacturing community and was awarded "New Industry of the Year" by Screven County Development Authority in 2015.

Koyo Bearings

After 40 years, success still rolling in for global bearing manufacturer

 

When it came to automobiles, it was a small world with big cars back in 1973 when Torrington Company opened its bearing manufacturing facility in Sylvania. Over the years, the automobile industry has gone global, and the company has gone through several ownership changes, as Torrington was purchased by Timken (2003) and then by Koyo Bearings USA JTEKT (2010). But one constant remains: the on-going productivity and profitability of the Sylvania plant.

The facility has grown in square footage (from 185,200 square feet to 273,000 square feet) to accommodate an expanding product line that now includes drawn cup and needle roller ball bearings, drawn cup clutches, drawn cup retainers, drawn sleeves, steering bearings, and precision pins and shafts.  Customers include manufacturers in not only the auto market but also agricultural, industrial, and distribution markets.

The standards for manufacturing performance have never been higher, but Koyo remains confident of the ability to deliver great products.  “People are our most important asset,” says David M. Burke. “Screven County has provided us great support and great people for 40 successful years.”
