Fueling advanced manufacturing growth across Indiana’s Hard-Tech Corridor: Reimagine IN-MaC through Purdue in West Lafayette and Indianapolis

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — To fuel and impact the ongoing manufacturing renaissance and expand its reach across Indiana, Purdue University is launching the Indiana Next-Generation Manufacturing Competitiveness Center (IN-MaC) node at Purdue University in Indianapolis in a joint venture with Purdue’s Manufacturing and Materials Research Laboratories.

Since its inception, IN-MaC has been a partnership between the Purdue Polytechnic Institute and the College of Engineering and includes collaboration with Ivy Tech and Vincennes University to help solve manufacturing challenges for Indiana-based companies. Recently, Purdue leadership advocated for a Hard-Tech Corridor between West Lafayette and Indianapolis as a way to support Indiana manufacturing, entrepreneurship and economic development in critical technology areas. To support this initiative, IN-MaC will be reimagined in a way that will now have two locations — West Lafayette and Indianapolis — to amplify digital, physical and sustainable industrial transformation impact along the corridor.
