OCM Manufacturing Marks Successful Year with Key Initiatives

OCM Manufacturing reflects on 2011 successes: increase in sales, expanded facility, new customers, and new leadership.

2011 was another successful year for OCM Manufacturing, the Ottawa-based contract electronics manufacturer. The 24-year-old firm saw a ten percent increase in sales and also introduced several new programs and initiatives for its customers. 

Heading the list of accomplishments was the introduction of a dedicated prototyping service, ProtoSnap, which offers customers the quickest, most efficient turnaround process for new PCB prototypes. The new process extended OCM’s end-to-end service offerings for customers producing low-to-mid-volume electronics products. 

OCM also completed an expansion of its facility, which effectively doubled of the size of its manufacturing capability to 15,000 square feet and accommodates a second, new manufacturing line. 

OCM also welcomed a number of new customers in 2011. Among them, Induction Dynamics has contracted OCM to build its line of race car fuel pump controllers, an example of how the use of microelectronic systems is bringing a new level of efficiency to an area that had relied on lower forms of technology. Additional customer announcements are expected in the coming months. 

On the strategic front, OCM established an Advisory Board with three key industry veterans who will provide ongoing advice and counsel to the company. The Board includes George Cywnar; Peter Andrews; former President, Michel Jullian; and new President, George Henning. 

“The past year has been one of continued growth and success for the company,” said George Henning, President of OCM Manufacturing. “We put a number of new initiatives and controls in place that position us for growth. The team at OCM is looking forward to taking the company to the next level and will continue to introduce new value-added service offerings.”
