WestGate @ Crane
The WestGate@Crane Technology Park is the first tri-county Certified Technology Park in the State of Indiana and is described by Purdue University as “the single best opportunity for the direct commercialization of technology in Indiana.” Its purpose is to support Crane and related military initiatives as well as commercially-based technology transfer and intellectual property development.
The WestGate Academy Conferencing & Training Center is the crown jewel of the WestGate@Crane Technology Park. This spacious, state-of-the-art facility opened its doors in October 2012, and since then it has been serving the needs of NSA Crane and the surrounding communities. The facility holds work-related meetings, community-based events, and educational opportunities with focus upon workforce education, government and military contract support, Tech Transfer and incubation, and conferencing. Its largest room encompasses more than 14,000 square feet of space.
Major defense contractors as well as the Battery Innovation Center call WestGate home.
