Los Angeles, CA (March 25, 2019) – Arecont Vision Costar, the leader in network-based video surveillance solutions, announces the appointment of Ernie Duran as Vice President of Global Supply Chain for Costar Technologies, Inc. (“Costar”), based at the new Advanced Technology Center in Clovis, California.
Costar’s Global Supply Chain organization manages the company’s manufacturing, operations, purchasing, supplier relationships, warehousing, and shipping/receiving teams. This includes the CohuHD Costar manufacturing facilities in San Diego, California and the newly opened Arecont Vision Costar manufacturing and warehouse facilities in Duarte, California, plus support of the operations of the company’s other business units.
“Ernie brings over eighteen years of proven global supply chain and logistics experience to Costar,” said Shane Compton, Chief Technical Officer, Costar Technologies, Inc., and General Manager, Arecont Vision Costar. “I am confident that Ernie’s knowledge and skills will further strengthen our delivery of superior products and satisfied customers across the security industry.”

This initiative is based on three key pillars, which are focused on Customer Support, Product Quality, and Product Innovation. All aspects of the company are oriented toward achieving and maintaining this initiative.
As a consultant, Mr. Duran served as a key member of the Arecont Vision Costar team which orchestrated the shutdown, packing, movement, & re-establishment of the Glendale, California manufacturing, warehouse, and shipping/receiving functions to a new location in Duarte, California. The combined manufacturing and warehouse facilities were brought on line without interruption of customer shipments. Mr. Duran now adds responsibility for CohuHD’s manufacturing and supply chain to his portfolio with this corporate assignment, and support of other Costar business units.
“I look forward to continue working closely with the experienced leadership of Costar’s manufacturing and operations teams,” commented Mr. Duran. “This is an exciting time to join the company to focus our growth and success through an enhanced supply chain and improved manufacturing processes across our business units.”
