Please join us on Manufacturing Day 2017, Friday, October 6, as LIFT – Lightweight Innovations For Tomorrow and IACMI – The Composites Institute unveil our state-of-the-art Lightweighting research and development laboratory in Detroit’s historic Corktown neighborhood.

The institutes will cut the ribbon on their joint facility in celebration of manufacturing and the one-year anniversary of announcing their commitment to bring this facility to Detroit. This $50 million facility brings together two Manufacturing USA institutes focusing on cutting-edge lightweighting applied research and development in metals and composite materials. This facility brings together advanced manufacturing experts from around the country to conduct innovative research and advanced lightweight manufacturing right here in Detroit.

The celebration will mark the innovation hub as officially open– exactly one year after the institutes announced a $50 million investment into the facility. This hub will further our respective missions related to investing in and supporting the U.S. manufacturing base.

Highlights of the investment include unique, sought-after research and development manufacturing equipment, an innovative learning center, and the facility itself comprised of 100,000 square feet of space, 87% of which is dedicated to a high-bay manufacturing and applied research and development space.
