Core Values



Laying the Foundation

Star Warehouse Company was incorporated in August, 1981. The company changed its name in 1985 to Inland Star Distribution Centers, Inc. During these early years, co-founder and current Chairman and CEO, Michael Kelton, guided the young warehousing company into a provider of quality regional services. Growth was facilitated when Mr. Kelton contracted with a local marketing firm to conduct research, develop a focused marketing plan, and develop marketing communications materials.
