Working to make Alabama the Nation's Leader in Robotics

In June 2008, Governor Bob Riley announced the location for Alabama's new robotics training and education center in Decatur. The Huntsville area's leadership in robotics made North Alabama the ideal spot for the center, which has brought remarkable benefits to the local economy, workforce, and future.

Our Story

The Alabama Robotics Technology Park is a three (3) building campus targeted to the needs of the robotics industry. We broke ground on our $71 million investment in 2009 and completed phase 1 the following year. By 2016, we had completed Phase 2, Phase 3, and implemented the RTP Mobile Robotic Training Lab, which is designed to give k-12 students, teachers, and parents a hands-on experience introduction to the latest technology within the robotics industry.
