BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -It's made in America and right here in Buffalo! Ohio based pottery and basket company Longaberger can now say all its products are made in america thanks to a new Buffalo partnership. The company is moving its pottery division to Buffalo after years of operating in China. Longaberger has hired 22 employees locally and will operate out of the former Buffalo China facility. Niagara Ceramics is renting its space and equipment for the company to operate.

"Niagara Ceramics has the skill set and the knowledge, so we were able to partner up with them," said The Longaberger Company CEO Tami Longaberger.

The goal is to produce a million pieces a year from the site.
