Horizon Distributors Promises Always in Stock

Horizon Distributors Promises Always in Stock
Core products guaranteed in stock at local Horizon stores

Since the economic downturn there has been a perception in the green industry that distributors aren’t maintaining the same stocking levels they did before 2009. Right or wrong, contractors have been voicing concern about their distributor’s ability to fill orders.

To better support the industry, Horizon Distributors has invested in a new program to reassure landscape professionals that they have the products contractors need day in and day out. The new “Always in Stock” program guarantees that core products will be on the shelves , or you receive a $10 gift certificate.

“Our customers are professional contractors who rely on their distributor partners to have product in stock so that they can do their job,” explains Mary Martinez, director of marketing at Horizon. “Because this is important to our customers, it’s important to us”.

Each Horizon store has a list of products on the AIS program. If you walk in to a Horizon store and they are out of one of those products, you receive a $10 gift certificate off your next purchase. Because of regional preferences the specific products vary by store. But Martinez assures us those lists contain key items. “These are products our customers need every day – sprinklers, valves, fertilizer, oil, wire, glue. Our goal is to fill every order complete and get our customers back out making money as quickly as possible.”

The AIS program runs through October. To see which products are on the AIS at your local Horizon, visit your local store or go to
