1. A storage location is the place where stock is physically kept within a plant.

A storage location has the following attributes:

There may be one or more storage locations within a plant. A storage location has a description and at least one address. It is possible to store material data specific to a storage location. Stocks are managed only on a quantity basis and not on a value basis at storage location level. Physical inventories are carried out at storage location level. A storage location can be assigned to a warehouse number in the Warehouse Management System. You can assign more than one storage location to the same warehouse number within a plant. Storage locations are always created for a plant.

2. The same plant can't be assigned to diff company code.

The same storage locations can't be assigned to different plants but the two storage locations with same name can be assigned to the two plants individually.

A Plant can assigned to only one Plant as per SAP system, It is quite illogical to assign a single plant to a multiple company codes. and you will not be able to do it through SAP standard settings.
