We don’t want to brag, but this past year we have been honored by two great local institutions; the Cape & Islands Workforce (CIWB) Investment Board awarded us with their Business Partner of the Year Award, and the Associated Industries of Massachusetts (AIM) presented us with their Next Century Awards.

"Next Century awards honor employers, community organizations and individuals who have made unique contributions to the Massachusetts economy and the well-being of the people who live here."

In their own words…

“Onset has for 38 years been a technology mainstay in a region better known as a tourist destination.

“Few of the thousands of vacationers who pass Onset’s 40,000-square-foot design, engineering and manufacturing facility on their way to Cape Cod beaches realize that the company is one of the world's leading supplier of data loggers, weather-station products, wireless sensors, and web-based monitoring systems.”
