St. Louis Economic Development Partnership (STL Partnership) CEO and President, Rodney Crim joined executives from Boeing, Greater St. Louis, Inc. and Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Center in St. Louis (AMICSTL) board members to announce Boeing’s $5 million investment to help expand the advanced manufacturing center. The investment will help fund a state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing facility, accelerate workforce development programs, and grow the region’s talent pipeline and technical and manufacturing abilities.
“AMICSTL grew out of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership’s Regional Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (RAMP) initiative,” said Rodney Crim, CEO and President of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership. “We are proud to have been part of the foundation of AMICSTL and are excited about the possibilities it brings to the region.”
St. Louis Partnership and Greater St. Louis, Inc., along with a broad, bi-state regional coalition applied for the US Department of Economic Development Build Back Regional Challenge to develop a new Regional Tech Triangle, of which, AMICSTL would be the hub.
The Tech Triangle will create the conditions to bring together and spur innovation within three sectors, advanced manufacturing, biosciences, and geospatial technology, through a “hub and spoke” model that advances inclusive economic growth and resiliency. The hub and spokes will provide strong anchors to the immediate community and broader region, accelerate regional job and wealth creation, and attract new business formation.
