Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) Board members and staff joined with local officials and business leaders this month as AASKI Technology, Inc. held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its grand opening at Fort Monmouth’s Building 2525 in the Charles Wood Area in Tinton Falls.
AASKI, a defense contractor and communications engineering firm, moved to Fort Monmouth last year after its affiliate RADAR Properties, LLC, purchased the approximately 12.25-acre parcel of land located near Commvault.
“AASKI is a welcome addition to the technology hub we are creating here on Fort Monmouth,” FMERA Board Chairman James V. Gorman said. “We wish the company much success in its new location.”
AASKI was previously headquartered in Ocean Township, and leased additional space in Eatontown and Aberdeen, Maryland. By consolidating its New Jersey operations at Fort Monmouth, rather than moving to Maryland, AASKI plans to retain 105 jobs in the Garden State and create an additional 25 jobs at Fort Monmouth by 2018. FMERA anticipates that the remaining 42,000 square feet of property within Building 2525 will accommodate AASKI’s potential growth, with RADAR seeking to lease any excess space to other technology companies.
