WILCOX COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley will attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Golden-Dragon Copper USA manufacturing facility in Wilcox County Wednesday.

Joining the governor for the event will be company chairman Li Changjie as well as other federal, state and local officials.

The 500,000 square-foot, $100 million facility will result in the employment of more than 300 people once it is at full production.

The plant will use state-of-the-art processes and will produce more than 100 million pounds of copper tubing each year.

Gov. Bentley recruited the company to Alabama on his second day in office as part of his first economic development project.

The grand opening ceremony is set to begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning.
