DOT GmbH Invests $4.5MM to Establish Production Facility In Columbia City, Indiana

Germany-based DOT GmbH, a medical coating technology provider, plans to establish DOT America in Columbia City, Indiana, creating up to 20 high-wage jobs by 2016. The orthopaedics company will invest approximately $4.5 million to lease, renovate and equip a 17,520 square-foot facility in Columbia City's Blue River Industrial Park.

The facility, the company's first location outside of Germany, will enable DOT to fill a gap in the supply chain to its North American clients. "DOT offers valuable surface treatment services to the orthopaedic and medical industry in Indiana and the United States. Although business relations with U.S. customers are already well established, the generation of further growth needs direct market presence," said Hans Eifeler, Managing Director of DOT. "DOT chose to establish its North American operations in Indiana primarily because the world's leading orthopaedic companies are located here. In addition, Indiana has a positive, welcoming business climate for foreign investors."

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered DOT America up to $50,000 in performance-based training grants based on the company's job creation plans. (Source: Area Development Online)
