The Wahconah Group clothing company intends to create up to 200 jobs in Cleveland, according to U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown's office.
Company officials and Brown, an Ohio Democrat, are scheduled to hold a news conference this morning at what will be the clothing company's new headquarters on East 55th Street, near Central Avenue. The building formerly housed Goodwill Industries.

Current law only requires federal agencies to purchase textile products that are 51 percent made in this country.
