About Us


Mr. Helmut Friedrich started ASO GmbH in 1984 in Salzkotten, Germany as a provider of innovative products such as safety edges, bumpers and mats. 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 grew nicely over the years and in September of 2012, we moved to our new headquarters doubling our office, warehouse and assembly areas.

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 product to customer specifications and we extrude our edge profiles in Salzkotten, Germany.
