Operations and Supply Chain Management Students Visit Peterlin Distributing Co.

Students in Roger Woods’ OSM 3000 course have had the opportunity to tour Northern Hardwoods and Calumet Electronics to take their education outside the classroom.  On Thursday, April 7 students met up at Peterlin Distributing Company in Calumet, Michigan to tour their wholesale warehouse.  Vice President, Mark Almquist provided a behind the scenes look of the largest beer and wine distributor in the Upper Peninsula.  Peterlin is one of 34 distributors in the nation to carry both Miller and Anheuser-Bush products, and has proudly been the main supplier to seven counties in the Upper Peninsula since 1939.

During the tour students learned about the stocking and shipping processes, how the stock is protected, how the facility meets heating and cooling standards and they even had the chance to sample a new product.
