Dave Watson of Dave Watson Associates, a manufacturers representative based in Adrian, Mich., mailed a letter to his wholesaler customers encouraging them to attend an Inventory Management Seminar April 3 hosted by the Michigan Association of Distributors.
He and some of his vendors, including Fluidmaster, William H. Harvey Co., Keeney Manufacturing Co., and Watts Regulator Co., offered to pay 50% of the tuition fee. The seminar will be led by Scott Stratman, president and founder of The Distribution Team.
"I am worried that many of the wholesalers are not managing their inventory to the fullest," Watson said. "I am hoping that all the wholesalers will attend the seminar if for no other reason than as food for thought."
