GLENS FALLS, N.Y. , May 23, 2017 — BARTON International, a global leader in garnet abrasives, has promoted Delroy Ross to director of warehouse operations for two of its garnet abrasives warehouses and processing facilities in Chesapeake, Virginia, and Reserve, Louisiana. He previously served as warehouse manager for those facilities.

“Delroy is an accomplished logistics professional who has managed our Chesapeake and Reserve facilities for more than ten years,” BARTON International COO Chuck Barton said. “He has the leadership skills and technical expertise to ensure that our teams deliver superior service, enhance customer retention, and build sales growth.”

Barton noted that under Ross, who has more than 31 years of experience in logistics and transportation, employee safety and product quality have been outstanding.

BARTON International Triples Capacity of Warehouse and Processing Center in Port of South Louisiana

Warehouse Ribbon-Cutting Set for May 23

GLENS FALLS, N.Y., May 23, 2017 — BARTON International, a global leader in garnet abrasives, recently amped up its capabilities to receive, store, and process BARTON brand garnet following the just-completed expansion of its Port of South Louisiana warehouse and processing center. The project nearly tripled its storage footprint.

To celebrate wrap-up of the expansion project, BARTON International, in conjunction with Associated Terminals, which manages the Reserve, Louisiana, facility, will hold a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony at the warehouse on Tuesday, May 23.

The massive new building, which covers 77,000 square feet, comprises an annex adjacent to its existing 44,000-square-foot structure. The expanded facility holds vast quantities of industrial garnet used in waterjet cutting, coatings removal, and other specialized abrasives applications. The expansion project included a new roadway and other paved areas, as well as a loading dock ramp, truck scales, and bulk storage bins.

“We’ve upgraded our processing operations by building out the lines from three to four,” BARTON Director of Warehouse Operations Delroy Ross said. “Our new air washing process represents the most current cleaning technology and our sophisticated screening ensures high product consistency and quality.”

Ross noted that the facility’s packaging unit can produce multiple configurations — including, for example, bulk and 25-kilogram bags — designed to satisfy a wide range of customer needs. “Our state-of–the art robotics palletizing delivers top speed and efficiency,” he said, adding: “The new warehouse complex has enabled us to streamline these operations and consolidate everything under one roof.”
