A world, in which automation helps people …

… and keeps them safe at the same time: This is our wish. This is what we work on. Every day.

It is one thing to demand the most perfect safety measures and another to actively work towards making our world a little safer every day. This is what is expected from us; nothing less will do. We face this challenge. Beginning with competent advice and ending with customized solutions. For this we demonstrate our strength: conviction and passion. Professionalism and superior technology. Highly motivated employees in R&D and at the workbench. Everyone knows and supports our common goal: safety technology, that is progessive in the best sense of the word, because its purpose first and foremost is to protect people.

Our claim

To be more than a mere supplier

Our customers expect and get premium quality products. That is a given and therefore we do not stop here. Because ASO delivers far more than mere products; ASO creates added value. We do this as a dialog partner whose consultation expertise is in demand even during the development stage of end products. Often, these are interdisciplinary insights that are way ahead of the general standard and enable us to find the right responses to new challenges. 

At the cutting edge. Our history.

Helmut Friedrich started ASO GmbH in 1984 in the small town of Salzkotten, Germany as a provider of innovative products such as safety edges, bumpers and mats. ASO products entered the North American market first in 1996, with the help of US sales partners. In 2004, after strong growth in Europe, Mr. Friedrich realized a global presence was needed and thus began the formation of the US operation based in Rockaway, NJ. ASO Safety Solutions has been growing steadily over the years and in September of 2012, we moved to our new headquarters doubling our office, warehouse and assembly areas. At the beginning of 2017, President Helmut Friedrich appointed Simon Rockel and Svenja Sperlich to join him on the executive board, taking over from Tom Polistina. 

ASO provides Assemble-it-yourself edges along with finished edges made to our customer’s specifications. Safety mats are stocked at our Rockaway facility and are custom made to order as well. Our engineers design products to customer specifications and we now extrude our edge profiles in Lippstadt, Germany, after moving the German Headquarters there in 2014.

Active and a leading supplier to many industries, ASO participates at many trade shows worldwide. In the US, you can visit ASO’s booth at the annual International Door Association Trade Show and at regional shows thoughout the US. In Europe, ASO exhibits at the R+T trade show held every three years. This is the door and gate industry’s largest trade show. Additional exhibit schedules are listed periodically at the Trade Shows & Events section of our website. As we grow, ASO Safety Solutions continues to add new product innovations.
