Calderon taps Studebaker

Indianapolis —Calderon Textiles has hired Dan Studebaker as vp of supply chain management, reporting directly to Calderon president Azher Khan.

His responsibilities will include management of purchasing, inventory, fulfillment, distribution and logistics functions for the company's multiple business units: Textile Rental, Healthcare, Hospitality, and Retail.

Most recently Studebaker was vp at Van Dyne Crotty. Prior to the recent acquisition of that company by Cintas Corporation, Studebaker maintained a 10-year working relationship with Calderon Textiles. “Having prior knowledge of Calderon's operation allows me to better focus on efficiencies to increase the bottom line,” he said.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
