Swann Key words: distribution network design; integer programming; ethics History: Received: October 2008; accepted: March 2010. Stationery Demand is a national distributor of customized paper goods and office supplies located in Blawnox, Pennsylvania. The company was founded in 1963 by John Karthan, a former Westinghouse engineer who left the nuclear business to satisfy his entrepreneurial fervor. From the company’s earliest days John emphasized personal interaction with his customers, often making evening sales calls himself at the homes of other small business owners. More companies saw the value of placing their logo on stationery and other office supplies, and Stationery Demand’s business grew exponentially in the 1970s and 1980s. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png INFORMS Transactions on Education INFORMS
