TROY, MI-Automation Alley has a new home here. The high-tech business support group has moved into a 12,000-sf headquarters and tech center, leaving temporary offices in the Oakland County government complex and other rented space in Pontiac.

The move gives Automation Alley, whose membership has grown from 42 companies at its founding in 1999 to more than 510 today, better visibility and plenty of space to showcase the technology being developed throughout the region, officials say. “The whole team will be together for the first time in five years,” says Ken Rogers, Automation Alley’s executive director.

Automation Alley’s $2.5-million building, paid for entirely by state and federal grants, is highlighted by a 2,200-sf glassed-in atrium that will play host to technology shows, product demonstrations and business networking events.
