Tech firm makes Bell Works its regional HQ, adding space and employees

A network and cybersecurity testing solutions company has expanded its location at Bell Works, making the Holmdel-based “metroburb” its new regional headquarters.

Bell Works owner Somerset Development said in a news release that Spirent Communications has grown its presence to 35,000 square feet and 130 employees, moving some from an affiliate Eatontown office to Holmdel.

“We are ecstatic to be strengthening our partnership with Spirent, with Bell Works serving as its regional headquarters for the tri-state area,” Somerset Development President Ralph Zucker said in a prepared statement. “Bell Works’ spirit perfectly complements Spirent’s desire for a vibrant work environment in an easily accessible location. The metroburb’s central location in Holmdel gives employees easy access to major highways and roads, making commuting as stress-free as possible.”

Spirent will maintain both offices and lab space at the larger Bell Works location.

“Spirent has thrived as part of this collaborative community, and continues to benefit from the incredible energy here at Bell Works,” Director of Global Properties Ray Lee said in a statement. “The uniqueness of the metroburb community was the driving factor in our decision to expand our space at Bell Works and bring all of our regional team members to the campus. We’re thrilled to be able to offer our employees a workplace in which collaboration, inspiration and connectivity is not only possible, but ingrained in the day-to-day experience at the metroburb.”
