BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - 22 new jobs are coming to the former Buffalo China factory, currently called Niagara Ceramics.

The Longaberger Company, based in Ohio, is opening its own Pottery Works at Niagara Ceramics. It will be the first time in the company's 40 year history that it will produce its own products.

"This is a historic and exciting step forward in our mission to create more American jobs and to support American craftsmanship," said CEO Tami Longaberger.

A ribbon cutting ceremony has been scheduled for May 20 in Buffalo.
