About Us

The Distribution Center has been located at 300 Central Street, on the West Campus, since 1975.

The building we are located in, was built in 1901, and originally housed the Lake Waban Laundry Company.

Lake Waban Laundry moved out of the building around 1975, and the college took it over.  For many years it housed not only the Distribution Center warehouse, but also the Purchasing Department Offices, and Printing Services.

Mail Services, which was originally located in Green Hall, moved into the Distribution Center in 20XX.

The Distribution Center was under the Purchasing Department for a number of years, but during a 2009 reorganization of college departments, the Purchasing Department was moved to Green Hall, and the Distribution Center was placed under the Administration and Planning Department, which is overseen by Bob Bossange, Assistant Vice President for Administration and planning.

Rick Russell, Distribution Center/Material Control Manager, and Thanh Quan, Distribution Center Stockperson, are the college employees responsible for the day to day operation of the Distribution Center, and the fulfillment of it’s mission to the college community (please see our mission statement below).

Our goal is to provide the college community with the best service possible.
