Understanding the Concept of Inventory-Sharing

Presented by Ted Henry, President, WarehouseTWO

Of all the challenges we've faced over the past two years, the ability to effectively manage inventory is one we might not have anticipated — at least not to the extent to which many companies are facing manufacturing and distribution disruptions. While not a new concept, inventory sharing is a service that has come into its own. This program is designed to introduce you to the concept and provide an explanation as to why it can help both distributors and manufacturers grow their business in sales and profits.

Ted Henry started WarehouseTWO in July 2021 with the objective of helping manufacturers and distributors get products to their customers quicker. He has 25 years of experience in the fluid power industry working in sales and marketing positions with major manufacturers like Parker Hannifin and Continental, along with smaller regional industrial distributors. His experience made him keenly aware of how inventory issues can disrupt the business process. As a result of that experience, he founded WarehouseTWO as a possible answer to mitigating these problems.
