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.
