Earl Robinson, President
Earl Robinson co-founded Omnica in 1984 with two former colleagues and is President. After graduating with a degree in Industrial Design in 1973, he worked in product design for C.R. Bard, Inc. and then for privately held Harco Medical, Ltd. He moved to Southern California in 1983 and briefly free-lanced for local design studios (Design West and Creative Design Center) to get an education on the design engineering services business model. These early phases of his career taught him "what not to do" when he founded Omnica. His education has never ceased.
