A year ago, IUPUI announced Tom and Peggy Ward’s $100k gift to the School of Engineering and Technology. We are happy to report the Student Innovation Fund has it’s first recipient.
IUPUI student Earl Han grew up with a love for cars, “all I’d talk about was cars, or so my parents say,” he states in the interview posted at IUPUI.edu.
His team, which includes fellow IUPUI Motorsports grad Paul Lucas, plans to update the function and structure of the rear wing. While this is a complicated project, it’s just the beginning of the group’s long term vision. “Our 20-year goal, I suppose, is to become a small manufacturer of specialty or boutique cars,” Han states.
Tom Ward, Owner of OmniSite, issued a statement. “Peggy and I are proud to support the School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. It’s exciting to watch our gift fuel entrepreneurship and innovation in Central Indiana. On behalf of everyone at OmniSite, we congratulate Earl, Paul and their team for being named the first recipients of the Student Innovation Fund.”

OmniSite welcomes two new employees to the OmniSite family. We have added a Billing Specialist and Technical Support. These additional employees will aid the company in improving our service to all of our customers. We are glad to have them use their skills and talents to strengthen the company.
OmniSite is growing both in numbers and in sales. We are looking at record sales growth this year.

Our company strives to combine innovation and quality in all that we do, and conduct business in a way that is reflective of our high standards.
OmniSite’s Training Program has gained applaud from customers across the country. Most attendees claim it is the best technical training they have ever received. This is because our 2-day training is comprehensive, easy to understand, and provides useful knowledge for technicians and sales reps alike. No long-winded lectures and boring PowerPoint presentations here. Instead, we teach actively by having trainees do wiring labs, product configurations, and GuardDog setup.
Now there is another reason to attend our training, CEU credits! Our program is certified by the state of Indiana and Illinois. This means drinking water and wastewater operators in these states can gain credits by attending our classes. We currently have our applications out at other states for certification as well. Contact us for more information if you wish to have our program certified for your state.
Our training has been so successful we have added additional sessions to our training calendar. Check out the training tab on the website to see the updated calendar and availability. For groups of 4 or more, contact us for setting up a separate group training session.
Today we announced that Ken Strong and Chris Kent have stepped into more defined roles with the company. Ken and Chris will both be joining the software/hardware development team as software engineers. Ken joined OmniSite in 2005 while Chris came aboard in 2006.

It is now time for both of them to take on more responsibility with the company by doing programming and development full time.” Read more

We would like to thank all the distributors and participants who attended the OmniSite National Sales Meeting at the Excalibur in Las Vegas on January 15, 2007. The event was well-attended with at least one representative from every distributor firm present.
