Comrise is Moving to Woodbridge, NJ!

We are excited to announce that Comrise will be moving its U.S. headquarters next month from Hazlet, New Jersey to the nearby town of Woodbridge.

While the decision to move took much consideration, having a more centrally-located headquarters, not only for our employees but also for our consultants and clients, was a strong motivating factor. Our new location put us within 15 minutes from Newark Liberty airport, and about half-an-hour by train from Penn Station in midtown Manhattan.

In recent years, our success in the IT and Engineering industries, as well as in our Cross-Border Services division, has supported the unprecedented growth of Comrise's services. Our new facility is being customized from the ground-up to accommodate our future hiring demands and further expanding our capabilities in supporting IT and Engineering professionals. The look and feel for our new office will create a modernized, technological atmosphere that amplifies who we are as an organization and the highly sought-after talent we represent.

We will all miss the Hazlet community that has been Comrise's home for the past 34 years, but everyone at Comrise is excited to be joining a new community in Woodbridge, NJ. We look forward to our continued growth and the future service expansions lying just over the horizon.
