Michael Paperny
Purchasing/Inventory Manager

Mike basically purchases everything that comes into Barrie House - from half & half for everybody’s coffee, to raw material for us to produce a finished good, to machinery and parts so that product can be made.

His main responsibility is to analyze and maintain levels of all raw material (lids, labels, boxes, filter paper, etc.) making sure we do not have too much or too little and to make sure materials are delivered on time and in the most cost-effective manner. Mike continually communicates with departments inside of Barrie House, as well as with vendors outside the building and across the ocean.

Thanks Mike!
