To help make their economy more economically resilient, the Florida Institute of Technology developed the Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Innovative Design (CAMID) in Palm Bay.

In September 2015, EDA provided $1.4 million in disaster relief funds to help with the renovation of an existing 100,000 square-foot, two-story building to house CAMID.

CAMID will serve corporate partners of all sizes seeking the most cost effective solutions to their manufacturing and engineering design challenges.

Firms that utilize space at CAMID will have access to workforce training, advanced software and manufacturing equipment. The CAMID will create nearly 600 new high-tech jobs in the first few years of operation.
