Dothan 3D (Nanjing Zijin-Lead Electronics)
On the final day of the U.S.–China Manufacturing Symposium, Nanjing Zijin-Lead Electronics, one of China’s leading 3D printer manufacturers, announced the location of a small manufacturing facility in Dothan, which will be known here as Dothan 3D.

Dothan 3D General Manager Lian Ning said his company selected Dothan in part because of the warm welcome he received during his visits to the city over the past year. “And I understand from Mayor Mike (Schmitz) that there is a line in the Bible that says come to Dothan,” Ning Lian said through an interpreter. “I hope to build a bridge between China and this part of the United States. As we are successful, I hope other Chinese businesses will follow.”

Schmitz said he aggressively courted Dothan 3D because of the potential of 3D printing technology in the future. “The possibilities are endless,” Schmitz said. “I really think it can revolutionize a whole number of different industries. I am so honored to have them in our community, and I truly believe that this has unlimited potential.”
