The Kirby Mill

Where entrepreneurs with diverse pursuits share common resources with the mutual goal of building successful businesses

The Kirby Mill was extensively renovated during 1997. Since that time, the facility has been used for and has been the home to several innovative Technology, Engineering, Scientific and Manufacturing companies.  Shop, office and infrastructure are specifically suited for innovative problem solving, invention, creative thinking, engineering, research and development, prototyping, test, and manufacture of a large variety of projects and products.  This infrastructure and equipment is available for your use.


Although the facility is currently well equipped, it is expected that additional capabilities will be added as need demands.
