In its early days, Henry M. Wood Co. (HMW) functioned as manufacturers’ representative firm selling a variety of industrial equipment to accounts in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. During the 1950’s and 1960’s the company continued to offer products that were consistent with the requirements of the customer base and began to focus on the growing and evolving fluid power market, emphasizing pneumatics over hydraulics. As customer requirements in the pneumatics market evolved in the 1960’s and 1970’s, the need for local stocking distribution became apparent and HMW. Adapted to that business model and began to stock products locally, allowing the company to offer better service to its valued customers. Today, HMW is a stocking distributor for many of the products we sell and also continues to function as a manufacturer’s representative for several additional products.
Back in 1928, Henry Millard Wood probably did not visualize the future of what he started. He founded a business in Cincinnati, Ohio with the purpose of providing industrial equipment to companies in the Ohio Valley and he chose to name the company Henry M. Wood Co. Through the 1930’s and 1940’s Henry Wood expanded his company by adding sales representatives who could become his partners, a business philosophy of ownership that has continued for over 80 years.
