In 1986, Amity Printing plant, jointly founded by Amity Foundation and the United Bible Societies, broke ground in Dongshan Town, Jiangning County, Nanjing. In November 1987, the first Bible came off the production line. After decades of continuous efforts, Amity Printing has developed into a modern printing company with cutting-edge thin paper printing techniques. It is the main base of Bible printing in China and one of the world’s largest bases for Bible printing. Our mission is to serve the Chinese church to satisfy their needs for bibles, to serve overseas churches for their needs for bibles, and to serve the Chinese society and the people of China. Amity has printed more than 200 million copies of the Bible.
In 2019, a total of 16.25 million copies of the Bibles were produced by Amity Printing. The aggregate number of the Bible printed since the formation of Amity Printing reached 228 million copies.
