As of January 1, 2014, Newport Electronics, Inc. has merged into Omega Engineering, Inc. Newport is now a part of Omega and going forward will do business under the Omega name. Newport will continue to produce products such as signal conditioners, transmitters and controllers, as well as provide customer service and technical support. The shop on-line 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 and more.

Newport began manufacturing electronic instrumentation in 1965, high-precision test, measurement, process control and automation instrumentation for more than four decades.

In 2011, Omega Engineering Inc., was acquired by Spectris plc. Founded in 1962, Omega has grown steadily and is now established in the technical marketplace. The company offers more than  100,000 solutions for measurement of temperature, pressure, flow, level, strain, humidity, pH and conductivity, as well as a comprehensive line of data acquisition, electric heating and custom engineered products.

Spectris plc is a supplier of productivity-enhancing instrumentation and controls. The company’s products and technologies help customers to improve product quality and performance, improve core manufacturing processes, reduce downtime and wastage, and reduce time to market.
