The Advanced Manufacturing Park Arial View

Western Advanced Manufacturing Park is a 30-acre technology park located in the heart of Canada’s largest manufacturing region just minutes from Highway 401.

Founded in 2011, our creation was the result of a unique partnership between Western University, Fanshawe College, and the City of London to ensure the repetitive and continuous competitive advantage for regional industry and economic growth.

With our array of globally unique facilities, strong industry partnerships, and with ample room to grow and develop new technologies, we aim to empower collaboration between leading edge research & manufacturing, entrepreneur & investment partners to rapidly generate high technology, manufacturing innovations, and advanced solutions.

WindEEE Dome

2535 Advanced Ave., London ON, N6M 0E2

WindEEE (Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment) Dome, a LEED® Silver (2014) building, is the world’s first hexagonal wind chamber. Built in 2013, this globally unique facility allows researchers to address scientific, economic, and societal challenges related to wind. At 25 meters in diameter for the inner dome and 40 meters in diameter for the outer dome, this large-scale structure has the capability of physically simulating high intensity wind systems – including tornadoes, downbursts, and gust fronts – which cannot be created in any existing wind tunnels.

Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composites Research

2520 Advanced Ave., London ON, N6M 0E1

The Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composites Research (FIP-Composites at Western) is a joint venture between Western University and the Fraunhofer Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT) in Pfinztal, Germany. Built in 2012, this approximately 20,000 square foot facility develops, tests, validates, and characterizes new lightweight materials and advanced manufacturing processes at industrial scale.

By combining Fraunhofer’s latest global technologies and Western’s strengths in material engineering, FIP-Composites at Western proactively addresses the needs of its industry partners.

The Collider

2544 Advanced Ave., London ON, N6M 0E1

A multi-purpose facility built in 2014, this approximately 25,000 square foot LEED® Silver (2015) office & industrial space was specifically designed to stimulate collaboration between Park-based researchers and industry. Home to various tenants, including BOS Innovations, and partnering companies engaged in collaborative projects at the FIPComposites at Western, this facility ensures the security of their IP and proprietary technologies from competitive companies.
