Omron's Industrial Automation Co. (IAB) has promoted business operations that are rooted in the Chinese market over the past years. The chief aims of OMS are to supply reliable, high-performance control components and systems equipment from Shanghai to manufacturing sites around the world, while also contributing to the development of the manufacturing industry in China.

OMS provides functions for manufacturing, and will serve as a global design/production center for IAB.
