Automation Alley

Defense and Manufacturing

Southeast Michigan is home to a robust manufacturing base and a growing defense industry. Automation Alley offers several programs to support these industries in the region. The organization also provides avenues for local businesses to explore opportunities in the defense and manufacturing arenas, including procurement assistance and committee involvement.

Automation Alley’s defense office is located in the heart of Michigan’s Defense Corridor, creating opportunities for collaboration with local defense industry partners, including U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM LCMC) and Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC).
