About Us

People often wonder about the spelling of the Ohmega in Ohmega Salvage. Our name is a synthesis of two concepts: ‘Ohm’s law,’ the measure of electrical resistance to power (as they said to themselves “Hum, Hum”) and the Greek symbol, Omega, the final letter in the Greek alphabet, signifying that an object can be reborn even when at the apparent end of its life.

Black Logo

The original logo was designed by a local artist who designed album covers for many famous rock groups at the time. The artist also tried to capture in his design a womb-like appearance to the “O” in Ohmega, again suggesting the rebirth of salvaged objects.
