On Jan. 26, Toledo, Ohio-based hardware and industrial supplies distributor The Bostwick-Braun Company announced the promotion of Rob Dilts to Vice President of Operations & Supply Chain for the company’s Hardware Business Unit.

Dilts is expected to oversee the hardware operations and supply chain of the company’s Ashley and West Helena locations and report directly to the President of Hardware.

Dilts also is expected to develop the Hardware Business Unit’s investments in its infrastructure, technology, logistics capabilities, best-in-class processes and employees, the company said.
