OMNI Pacific was incorporated in 1981 by Thomas Burke. After owning and running a successful production kitchen cabinet manufacturing operation as well as a foray into the production of video game cabinets in the late ‘70s, the birth of personal computing led Mr. Burke to the design and production of computer support furniture.
Large contracts for office furniture worksurfaces led to entry in the office furniture market. Designs were developed for workstations with ergonomically unique surfaces featuring a durable comfort edge. The ability to postform high pressure laminate on worksurfaces and vertical faces opened the door to additional OEM opportunities for OMNI.
By 1990, computerized wood panel production equipment in the industry became available in the European market, specifically Germany and Italy. Mr. Burke seized the opportunity to upgrade to one of the most sophisticated factories in Southern California. OMNI remains at the forefront of technological advancements in manufacturing equipment and processes.
