Auburn Center for Developing Industries


Auburn Center for Developing Industries (ACDI) is designed for young, developing companies who will benefit from a startup environment, individual offices, and business support.

ACDI accommodates multiple companies, features startup-affordable leases and shared resources including utilities, internet, printing, and use of the conference room.

Additionally, there are four bays with large roll-up doors to serve as manufacturing-style lab spaces. A virtual tenant program is also available for companies who do not need office space, but would benefit from having a mailing address and access to shared amenities, including a conference room.

“Being at ACDI has been pivotal for our business. It has allowed our startup the opportunity to grow. Plus, as an incubator, it is fun to be around the energy of the other startups and entrepreneurs.”

Haitham Eletrabi, PhD | Tennibot | Founder & CEO

Auburn Incubator for Manufacturing


The Auburn Incubator for Manufacturing (AIM) facility is dedicated to startups with varying manufacturing needs.

The 20,000 sq. ft. facility is a shared space that can be leased in parcels to suit your requirements.

Startups enjoy space flexibility, short term leases, large overhead doors (at grade and loading dock) for delivery access and manufacturing type utilities (power, compressed air) at this location.

2175 Pumphrey Ave, Auburn, AL 36832


"Two years ago my startup ‘graduated’ from ACDI to the AIM facility. It was the natural progression as the company grew. We have the additional space we needed to grow the manufacturing capacity and launch the business to the next growth level."

Renato Gross | SWIGRO | President
