Developing an Advanced Technology Center in Your Community
What would it take to bring the manufacturing of the future to your community? One model to watch is the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology (SiMT), in Florence, S.C. A leading Advanced Technology Center, the SiMT was created to house advanced manufacturing and design engineering (e.g., 3D, virtual reality and rapid prototyping), a leadership institute and workforce development training. Designed to fully support manufacturers - from the entrepreneur to established firms working on advanced products and technologies - the comprehensive facility includes:
- Executive board room
- State-of-the-art auditorium
- The Interactive Digital Center for 3D interactive simulations
- Conference center, with catering facility
- Incubator space (under development)
In this presentation, Jack Roach, SiMT, will share the process, team and creative financing that resulted in this remarkable project and what they have planned for future phases.
