Ribbon-cutting

Delta Opens New Advanced Manufacturing Facility on Campus

Three months after opening its Global Innovation Center in Tech Square, Delta Air Lines cut the ribbon this week on its new Advanced Manufacturing Pilot Facility on 14th Street.

The facility is designed to be an integrated physical and cyber manufacturing technology testbed, as well as a demonstration and teaching facility. It will be a flagship component of the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute as a location where early-stage concepts can go from idea to reality, and was made possible by a $3 million gift from the Delta Air Lines Foundation.
