Eastern Parts Distribution Center Now Open

Mon June 20, 2011 - National Edition

Peterson’s Eastern Parts Distribution Center (EDC) in Columbia, S.C., has officially opened. It has been stocked with more than $1.5 million in Peterson OEM parts.

From the centrally located EDC, Peterson will be able to ship rush and emergency spare parts to customers throughout eastern and central North America in two days or less using lower cost ground freight services. With a large population of Peterson grinders, chippers and blower trucks and trailers east of the Mississippi, the EDC will give Peterson owners the assurance of maximum machine uptime and spare parts availability through an extensive dealer network backed up by a large spare parts facility in the region, according to the company.

The EDC is now fully operational, and is managed by Steve Farmer, parts manager of eastern North America. Farmer joined Peterson in January with 12 years logging experience as well as 17 years parts management experience with Pioneer Machinery/Blanchard Machinery.
