CLAREMONT, N.C. (AP) - A furniture company is expanding operations in western North Carolina, adding 72 new jobs.

Gov. Roy Cooper announced Wednesday that Sutter Street Manufacturing plans to spend nearly $2 million over the next three years while adding the jobs in Claremont in Catawba County.

Sutter Street Manufacturing is a subsidiary of high-end home furnishings retailer Williams-Sonoma. It makes upholstered home furnishings for brands including Pottery Barn, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma Home.

The state is providing a $300,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund to assist with the expansion.

Average salaries for the new jobs are expected to be nearly $48,000 annually.
