Baker Manufacturing celebrates 60 years

Posted: Updated:
PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Baker Manufacturing has been making furniture in Pineville since 1954.  
Wednesday's celebration was lunch for the dozens of employees and community supporters, a Buckeye marching band salute, and a look back at how the company began.  

"Pineville passed a bond issue in 1954 to help my father build this building and get started," said Rusty Baker, chairman of the Baker board. "And it had the highest approval rating of any bond issue in the state. So the city's always been behind us, the city's always supported us, the current administration is great, and we're delighted to be a part of the community of Pineville."

Mayor Clarence Fields also proclaimed May 7 to be "Bake Manufacturing Day."
