A former General Electric (GE) lab in Salina's Electronics Park will get new life as a nanotechnology laboratory that could eventually employ up to 250 people.
A $28 million state grant will help transform the empty space into the Nanotechnology Innovation and Commercialization Excelerator (NICE). NICE is a partnership of Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), the State University of New York at Albany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CSNE), and the CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity (CenterState CEO).
Group4 Labs, Inc. of Fremont, Calif. has already committed as a tenant at NICE. The company produces advanced nano-electronic devices used in a host of commercial, defense, and clean-energy applications.
