The Ostfriesische Maschinen und Gerätebau GmbH, OMAG was founded in 1948 to repair and build agricultural machines such as potato harvesters and slurry pumps. From these machines it diversified into manufacturing slab presses and machines for the hollow block production. The first were small stationary concrete products machines with different production board sizes. Most machines at that time were mobile “egg laying” machines, so OMAG was one of the market leaders for stationary machines. Today, under the direction of Mr. Jakob Weets, OMAG Service GmbH, still based in Emden employs more than 70 staff and manufactures state-of-the-art machinery with the most sophisticated machining equipment for high quality in-house parts production.
The equipment and complete plants designed by OMAG are manufactured in our state-of-the-art production facility in Emden, Germany. Prior to delivery, all plant components are completely pre-assembled in our test facility, electrical controls connected, software parameterized and the mechanical components extensively tested and must pass the quality control process.
On the subject of quality control, OMAG Service GmbH facility is about to be ISO 9001 certified. In fact, the electrical fabrication department is certified to produce control panels and cabinets and to allow cabinet labeling to UL and CSA requirements. OMAG’s investment reduces on-site delays due to local certification requirements. Upon passing quality control, the equipment is prepared and packaged for shipping. As far as possible, all equipment components are disassembled and safely loaded and secured in containers. The concrete products machine, elevators and lowerators are shipped as extra-ordinary freight.
Once the components arrive on site and upon prior agreement, our equipment installation teams will assist with unloading, staging, installation and commissioning of the plant. Finally, training on the operation and maintenance of the equipment will be provided to ensure maximum performance and assure plant longevity.
