Newport Electronics, a provider of high-precision test, measurement, process control and automation instrumentation, will now operate under the OMEGA brand name of Omega Engineering, Inc. NEWPORT, which began manufacturing in 1965, was previously a sister company of Omega Engineering, but now the two companies will be one and the same.

As a product of the change, the shop online feature of newportUS.com has been closed. Online users can now go directly to omega.com to place online orders. The newportUS.com website will remain as a resource for manuals, specifications, mechanical information, etc.
