1988 – 2022
courage meets experience
At the end of the 1980s in Poland, state-owned corporations began the process of transformation and privatisation into commercial companies.
In 1988, Biuro Usług Konsultacyjnych (Bureau of Consultation Services) at Łódzki Oddział Towarzystwa Konsultantów Polskich (Polish Association of Consultants, Division in Łódź), managed by Janusz Grochowski, PhD Eng., established a limited liability company, TKP-Projekt, in partnership with a design office called Miastoprojekt 2.
The next step was the withdrawal of Miastoprojekt 2 from the partnership and the resale of its shares to its employees and the experts at TKP.
1991 – TKP changes its name to TKP-OMNIKON, and the majority of the shares were bought back by its general manager, Janusz Grochowski, over the next few years. Janusz Grochowski, Zofia Wojtczak-Pakowska, and Anna Nowakowska become the major shareholders with more than 90% control.
Operating in this way since 2012, OMNIKON has been a family business with more than 90% of the shares being held by Janusz and Rafał Grochowski.
One year later, Dr.-Ing. Rafał Grochowski took over company management and remains the President of OMNIKON to this day.
The history of the company is a history of the people who have worked there or have done business with it. A special contribution to its growth has come from the cooperating specialists, like professor Zdzisław Pakowski, a world-class expert in dehydration technologies, and Marek Tomalczyk, PhD Eng., the design engineer behind the fluidized bed and vibration fluidized bed dryers and coolers.
Today Omnikon employs 25 specialists, including mechanical designers, structure designers, project managers & process engineers.
