JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - Sutter Street Manufacturing is expanding its upholstered furniture manufacturing operations by opening a facility in Baldwyn.

This project will create 350 jobs during the course of five years.

Sutter Street is a wholly-owned subsidiary of retailer Williams-Sonoma.

“I know the region’s skilled workforce will ensure the company finds success in Lee County just as it has at its distribution facility in DeSoto County,” said Gov. Phil Bryant.

Sutter Street will use the already existing facility in the Harry A. Martin North Lee Industrial Complex.

The employees there will produce handcrafted upholstered furniture for Williams-Sonoma brands including Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, PBteen, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma Home.

The company will begin hiring workers immediately for the Lee County plant and expects to begin production in January.
