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. In fact, BARTON’s Chesapeake warehouse team recently reached a corporate milestone of seven work years without a single recordable employee safety incident.

Ross, a resident of Yorktown, Virginia, previously held similar positions at NYK Logistics America, Hampton, Virginia, and with the U.S. Air Force in Norfolk. Ross holds associate of arts degrees in liberal arts from St. Leo University, St. Leo, Florida, and in logistics from the Community College of the Air Force, Montgomery, Alabama.
