Additive Innovation Center - Rock Island

Redefining the DoD's Logistics with Additive

Phillips Federal and the US Army Rock Island JMTC entered into a Public-Private Partnership (P3) to create the Phillips Additive Innovation Center inside the Rock Island Center of Excellence (CoE). The Additive Innovation Center is a dedicated space for Phillips Federal to work with the DoD to educate, inspire, and redefine the capabilities of additive manufacturing. 

Solving Your Toughest AM Challenges

This partnership will build new avenues and opportunities in the DoD to take AM to the next level. These possibilities will encourage designing with AM and empower the US industrial base to increase the initiatives to modernize DoD assets and revolutionize warfighter readiness.

The Center will contribute to additive manufacturing solutions through partnerships, application trainings, and the best in class additive technologies in support of the Army, the Joint Military Community, and surrounding industry partners.
