Supported by a gift from Purdue Northwest alumnus and Carlisle Companies Inc. Chairman, President and CEO Dave Roberts, the Commercialization and Manufacturing Excellence Center serves as a catalyst for economic development and technological transfer throughout Northwest Indiana and provides advanced manufacturing opportunities and related training for manufacturing companies of all sizes.
The 18,000 square foot facility is located at 7150 Indianapolis Blvd., just a few blocks west of the Purdue University Northwest Hammond campus. Project/Training facilities occupy the majority of the space within the center.
Project facilities enable faculty, students and community clients to design, develop and test prototypes. Training facilities enable workforce development in advanced manufacturing and provide technology solutions to the manufacturing industry.
In partnership with our campus, radio station WJOB’s broadcast operations and streaming media center are located at the Center.
