I probably could have gone a lifetime without knowing this about OMRON relays . . .
But since I found out, I can’t quit thinking about the fact that 1/5 of Omron’s total workforce works on relays. Omron produces in excess of 800 million relays a year managed by a state-of-the-art facility in Japan, which is large enough to cover 30 football fields. Approximately 7,000 employees (from the entire workforce of 36,000) are active within the area of relays at five dedicated production centers, including Kumamoto, which is the main production plant and headquarters.
