Omron Corporation (オムロン株式会社 Omuron Kabushiki-gaisha?) (TYO: 6645) is a Japanese electronics company based in Kyoto.
Omron was established by Kazuma Tateishi (立石一真) in 1933 and incorporated in 1948. The company originated in an area of Kyoto called "Omuro (御室)", from which the name "OMRON" was derived. Omron's primary business is the manufacture and sale of automation components, equipment and systems, but it is generally known for medical equipment such as digital thermometers, blood pressure monitors and nebulizers. Omron developed the world's first electronic ticket gate, which was named an IEEE Milestone in 2007, and was one of the first manufacturers of cash-dispensing ATMs with magnetic stripe card readers.
