In an effort to attract some of the area’s top engineering and IT experts, Direct Supply Inc. recently opened the Direct Supply Technology Center on MSOE’s campus. The Technology Center will house up to 60 Direct Supply computer engineers and technology interns, occupying more than 9,000 square feet in the German-English Academy.
“Milwaukee produces remarkable engineering and IT talent, and we’re proud to open our Technology Center in the heart of the MSOE campus,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer Bill Avery. “The center will be a key resource for us as we continue to develop and attract top-level IT professionals for our Milwaukee headquarters.”

Direct Supply is the nation’s leading provider of equipment, eCommerce and service solutions to the Senior Living profession. Headquartered in Milwaukee, they work for the success of their customers by providing quality products, unmatched response to customer needs and industry advocacy.

Having Direct Supply on campus offers a unique opportunity for students and alumni interested in interning or even potentially working at the company full time. “MSOE and Direct Supply have a long history of working together, and I am pleased to welcome them to our campus,” said Dr. Hermann Viets, MSOE president. “There are 57 MSOE alumni who work at Direct Supply, and 15 students who are interning there this year. This move further strengthens our relationship with the company.”
