American Sensor Technologies Moves
February 05, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsThe International Trade Center is a 7 million square foot Rockefeller Group development located in Mt. Olive, New Jersey. With over 15,000 square feet now dedicated to the manufacture of its pressure sensor products, AST plans to increase manufacturing capacity to meet growing market demand.
“With triple the manufacturing space used in our former facility, our new high tech manufacturing headquarters will give us the increased capacity needed to support our manufacturing growth,” states Michael P. Eldredge, American Sensor Technologies Executive Vice President, COO/CFO.
Most importantly, AST is investing in people. With forty full-time and three part-time employees in the new location, American Sensor Technologies is working to keep manufacturing in North America. The new location is only five miles west of the previous facility, making the move simple for all employees. AST is also investing in new equipment and technology such as test chambers and pressure calibrators to make its manufacturing lines more state-of-the-art in both unit output and quality. In addition, the new facility will include more room for Research & Development.
“The new headquarters offers larger facilities to pursue technology development,” notes Eldredge. “In addition, we plan to grow our technical application capabilities and engineering support by adding new personnel in production, sales and customer service.”
Effective today, AST’s corporate address will change to:
American Sensor Technologies

AST manufacture state-of-the-art, MEMS-based pressure sensors, transducers, and transmitters that offer the best price-performance ratio in the industry. Common applications of AST sensor products are in industrial OEM, hydraulic systems, fuel cells, medical gases, HVAC/R, refrigeration (ammonia, Freon, CO2), oil & gas exploration and production, and off-road vehicles. By combining exotic metals and AST’s exclusive, proprietary Krystal Bond™ Technology (an advanced process in which inorganic materials are molecularly diffused onto a metallic surface in the presence of certain gases), AST can produce high-performance strain gauge pressure sensors that support the specialized needs of key niche markets. Many AST products are UL listed as intrinsically safe and certified for explosion-proof required environments. Some of the world’s most highly respected industrial Fortune 500 corporations have tested and now use AST products in a wide range of critical and harsh environments.
