OMS celebrate 25 years in business

25 years ago OMS started life as a consultancy business where founder, Clive Ormerod, could offer the skills he had acquired in the civil engineering and construction sector to businesses who needed to access his expertise.

A quarter of a century later OMS is celebrating, with Clive hosting a special lunch yesterday (15 March) acknowledging customers, partners, suppliers and those who’ve worked with OMS along the way to say thank you.

OMS said: “The loyalty of our clients is something we’re particularly gratified of, people who return year after year to us. And of course, the team, those who work on behalf of OMS, they’ve also ensured our continued success today.”

With the drive and passion of the Managing Director and the entire team, OMS has become the training and consultancy partner of choice here in the East Midlands (and further afield).

OMS added: “Like any company, there have been challenging times and OMS are no different, however we are extremely proud of the many accolades, accomplishments and the support which we have given our clients and the local community. We have developed our training and consultancy portfolio enormously and seamlessly adapted our offerings when difficult times have arisen, like a pandemic where face to face training and client site consultant visits was popped on hold!”
