At a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, KIIAN USA officially opened for business in Soddy Daisy, marking the launch of the company’s first digital textile and signage ink production facility in North America and the expansion of the KIIAN digital business in the Americas.

Officials said, "This groundbreaking development is part of a strategic program to internationally expand KIIAN's ink business.

  The establishment of a regional headquarters in the United States, one of the most important of all global markets, is a key development in KIIAN's growth. 

"Located in Hamilton County, the focus for the KIIAN USA operation will be to extend and develop KIIAN's digital business in North America, as well as to support and assist growth for the rapidly-developing Central and South American markets." 

"KIIAN's investment illustrates Tennessee's ability to compete on a global scale and attract companies that offer quality, high-tech manufacturing jobs," Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. "We welcome KIIAN’s introduction to the U.S. and are pleased to be the home of their first North American headquarters."
