On Friday, April 7, the new AK Steel Research and Innovation Center opened its doors for their Open House and ribbon cutting celebration. It is a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility and we are glad to welcome AK Steel and their employees to the new facility here in Middletown.
The AK Steel Research and Innovation Center is a project that we have all been waiting in anticipation for for about two years, and the facility does not disappoint. From the time that AK Steel announced the project in February of 2015 until now, we have been watching the construction and hard work come to fruition (along with everyone that has driven by on I-75!), and it’s clear that AK Steel is ready to do some fantastic work out off of Union Road.
The new Research and Innovation Center sits on 16 acres on Union Road, across from Atrium Medical Center. The building houses 17 prototype labs, 17 analytical labs, and 22 collaborative spaces for the research team to work together in.
Take a look at their fact sheet and map of the new facility, along with photos – you won’t be disappointed!
