ABOUT RJR


DISTRIBUTION

RJR Fabrics is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-quality fabric designed exclusively for the crafting of quilts and home sewing. RJR specializes in the production of 100% cotton fabrics, brushed flannels and cotton sateens.

Headquartered in Torrance, California, RJR was formed in 1978 by Robert Cohan and his two sons, James and Richard. RJR was the result of a long-lived dream of Robert's to create a textile company to preserve a third-generation tradition in textiles traced back to 1908 with the family's woolen mills in Portland, Oregon.

The company name, RJR, is derived from the first initials of the three founders, Robert, James and Richard. Richard (Rick) Cohan has served as President and CEO since 1986. After James Cohan's retirement in 1991, John Durnell purchased his share of the business and became the Vice President.

Demetria Hayward joined RJR in 1994 as Director of Marketing and has worked to strengthen and build the company's brand identity worldwide. In September of 2003, Demetria became the Vice President of Marketing. She works closely with Beatriz Ordonez, Marketing and Web Content Coordinator to ensure RJR keeps building strong customers relationships and proving marketing tools for sales force.

Yuko was hired in January 2009 as RJR's new Art Director where she is in charge of directing RJR's artwork production and developing her own unique fabric collections.

Other key personnel who are instrumental in the company's operations are Dulce Colin, Warehouse Manager; and Ana Munoz, Director of Customer Service, who continually strive to offer RJR customers the very best service and on-time delivery and Luis Ordonez, Export Coordinator.
