History

Ohio Power Systems was founded in September 2003. We currently do business as OPS Wireless. The company was formed at the request of Omnex Controls for a dedicated channel partner and a belief in Mike Brooks’ passion for his customer’s success.  At this time Omnex was just taking center stage for being known for setting the standard in RF technology with frequency hopping spread spectrum radios. The improved technology helped us establish a business model that promoted better reliability over other brands.

Starting in 2010 OPS Wireless in a joint venture with Scanreco (Stockholm, Sweden) decided to introduce its radio remote control product line to North American manufactures. OPS Wireless is the only company manufacturing Scanreco radio remote controls in America. Today we are Scanreco’ largest customer in North America.

In 2014 a subsidiary company called Zeus Locomotive was formed. This company’s primary purpose is to manufactures wireless control robotic interface for locomotives. This product line will be marketed exclusively thru a Berkshire Hathaway company by the name of Trackmobile.

We have grown aggressively eleven out of twelve years and expect to double in the next five.

OPS Wireless will be also adding 2500 square feet to the existing building in the next six months so that we can add more employees.
