Jason Aspin co-founded Aspin Kemp and Associates (AKA) in 1996. Since graduating in marine engineering from the Canadian Coast Guard College in 1987 with specializations in power engineering and systems integration, he has built over 30 years of progressive experience in systems engineering in the Marine, Offshore and Industrial environments. As an innovator, he dedicates his time to designing solutions which are both socially and environmentally responsible. He has collaborated with other global innovators to develop new technologies of which several have been patented and have made a significant contribution in reducing the environmental footprint, increasing reliability and reducing operating costs for marine and power generation systems around the world.
Jason plays an active role in support of several other Island businesses and when possible shares knowledge, financial support and time with various organizations, educational institutions and community initiatives. Although Jason spent almost 20 years off-Island working in various parts of the world, he grew up on a farm in Eastern PEI and went to high school in Montague. In 2007, Jason returned to PEI and established this as AKA’s base for engineering and manufacturing for the company. In addition to Jason and his wife making PEI their home and raising their family here; their company has been responsible for similar stories for many other families from around the world that now call PEI home.
It is with great pride that we include Jason Aspin into the Junior Achievement PEI Business Hall of Fame.
