G.A.IN. - our Guaranteed Availability Initiative is hassle-free and gives you the flexibility you need and freedom you deserve.

Thornton Brothers is pleased to offer our clients the Guaranteed Availability Initiative, G.A.IN.

G.A.IN. was developed by the Thornton Brothers team in response to concerns from customers like you, many of which stem from common industry practices such as volume discounts, order minimums, unreliable delivery, product substitution and other factors that inhibit customer freedom and flexibility. These practices force customers to adhere to certain behaviors like ordering large quantities and paying a premium for small orders affecting cash flow and requiring companies to keep large inventories that can lead to theft and damage. With G.A.IN., Thornton Brothers is improving the way we do business...

"We are very pleased with the results from our participation in the G.A.IN. program. The weekly inventory service has proved to be very beneficial to our company by allowing us to stock much less inventory in our supply room but still be able to meet the demand for sanitation supplies as needed."

~ Janice Partain, Cobb-Vantress, Inc. -- Hartwell, Georgia

The Guaranteed Availability Initiative, simply put, is a replenishment system that delivers smaller quantities of the products you need to run your business at a more frequent rate. It ensures product availability while lowering the amount of inventory you, our customers, have to store. G.A.IN. works through our automated inventory control system that transmits customer inventory data back to us on a regular, recurring basis. We monitor and track the data to determine optimum inventory levels and seamlessly maintain your supply. This system eliminates ordering on our customers’ end while ensuring availability. In fact, we guarantee that if for any reason, supplies are not available to you, Thornton Brothers will pay you a penalty.

G.A.IN. is effective because it introduces a pull system into a traditionally push oriented supply chain. Using G.A.IN., our customers are able to move away from the constraints of the old system and embrace more flexible inventory management.

You will see that G.A.IN. will:

  • Ensure your product availability
  • Give you Hassle-Free inventory replenishment
  • Reduce your inventory volume
  • Lower your risk of inventory theft or damage
  • Increase your cash flow

G.A.IN. is tailored to each customer and can be implemented with individual items or as a comprehensive solution with your entire Thornton Brothers product line. G.A.IN. adheres to your process of purchase orders and invoicing. Our specialized G.A.IN. implementation team ensures a smooth transition with on-site improvement audits at 30, 60 and 90 days, allowing for continuous improvement. G.A.IN. gives you the freedom to do what you do best, run your business, and not worry about supply availability. No contract is required.
