Adam Cherry, Owner/President
As an independently owned laboratory, Toledo Optical has built our success on a foundation of delivering the highest degree of quality and service – supported by a business model which offers our customers an overwhelming amount of additional support. Through our membership in Global Optics we have benefited tremendously by the camaraderie and collectiveness which such a great group allows. Our success has been further supported by the wealth of shared information, the networking, and the value driven through having access to the largest lens warehouse in the country.
The corner stone of any business is its inventory and the control of this inventory. Having Global as our warehouse has enabled us to have the best fill rates I’ve seen in my 37 years with Walman.
The two most tangible strengths at Global delivers to Soderberg, Walman, Harbor, and Seoco Optical is their expansive inventory and superior shipping optimization capabilities, which allows us to have the best fill rates in the industry for our 35 labs spread out across the nation. The intangible benefits (besides the obvious benefits of networking and idea sharing) of belonging to Global is the fact that we are an independent laboratory network that has come together, while keeping our autonomy, to leverage our collective size, influence, and abilities to face the myriad of competitors and industry threats as a unified force to acknowledge in the wholesale lab industry.
