About Us

Who We Are…

The Industrial Representatives Association (IRA) was incorporated in the State of New Jersey in 1965, with Mr. James L. Farmer serving as the Association’s first president. Since that time, its industry members have been actively supporting the US Army’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) mission at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. With the execution of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) directive to move this mission to the Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, the Association is now licensed to operate in both New Jersey and Maryland.
