Two Chinese companies are eyeing Baton Rouge as a possible location for establishing their North American offices.  Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden is hosting Pepnice Corp. and Liantronics Co. Ltd. today.

Pepnice Corp. is the largest LED lighting manufacturer in the world, and Liantronics Co. Ltd. is the largest LED billboard manufacturer, according to the mayor's liaison to China.  Executives from both companies are meeting with representatives from Lamar Advertising Company, Southern University, and the state.

The mayor's office says this is the fourth Chinese contingent to visit Baton Rouge in response to Holden's trip to China last April.
