Sutter Street Manufacturing Upgrades Claremont, North Carolina, Manufacturing Center
“Ten years ago, we decided to invest in North Carolina and Catawba County because of the vast pool of skilled furniture craftsmen and women. Our talented associates are second to none and critical to the success of our organization,” said Darryl Webster, Vice President of Sutter Street Manufacturing.
“North Carolina and Catawba County have been valuable business partners working hand in hand with us to drive success. We are excited about our growth and look forward to continuing our partnership,” Webster said.
A performance-based grant of $300,000 from the One North Carolina Fund will help facilitate Sutter Street Manufacturing’s expansion in Catawba County. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and to create jobs. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for payment. All One NC grants require a matching grant from local governments and any award is contingent upon that condition being met.
“North Carolina is home to some of the most skilled furniture talent in the world,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “It’s that talent that keeps furniture manufacturers here, and this expansion is a testament to the health of the furniture industry in North Carolina.”
“Sutter Street Manufacturing has grown to support 583 full-time jobs in Catawba County for highly skilled furniture artisans,” said N.C. Commerce Secretary Anthony M. Copeland. “The company’s facilities need upgrading to keep pace with this growth, and this grant will help make that happen.”
In addition to North Carolina Commerce and the Economic Partnership of North Carolina, other key partners in the project include the N.C. General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the City of Claremont, Catawba County, Duke Energy, the N.C. Department of Transportation and the Western Piedmont Council of Governments.
