March 05, 1992|By Michael Dresser | Michael Dresser,Staff Writer

J. Schoeneman Inc., an Owings Mills-based men's clothing maker, has landed an exclusive license to manufacture and distribute Christian Dior suits, sports coats, trousers and rainwear in the United States.

James Stankovic, Schoeneman's president, said yesterday that the agreement could bring about $25 million in new sales to the company, which now has annual sales of about $100 million.

Schoeneman, a privately held company that has been based in Baltimore for 103 years, has its distribution center in Owings Mills, its manufacturing plant in Chambersburg, Pa., and its cutting operations in Wilmington, Del.

The new license could add 250 jobs to the company's work force of 1,600 to 1,700, Mr. Stankovic said. Most of the new jobs would be in Chambersburg, he said, but a few positions would be added at the Owings Mills center.

He said the license was the largest piece of new business ever to come to Schoeneman.
