What We Do



logoThomas M. Williams & Associates, Inc. was established in 1979 and we have been working in this industry since our inception. We normally work with about 30 to 40 distributors each year. Many are repeat customers.

Our business is to provide improved profits to our grocery wholesale, food service, and convenience store distributor clients. We do this through installing improved layouts, efficient methods, work standards, and incentive programs.

Feature 1


We can improve the layout of an existing building, or design one for an expansion or new building. Layouts are based on the methods that will be used to pick and load. Product is slotted using stacking properties and cubic feet movement. A variety of slot sizes are used to make sure there is a minimum of handling of product during the entire warehousing process.

Feature 3


Once layout changes are completed and methods have been changed, standards are set to measure and track performance. Standards are also used to forecast future work loads, plan weekly and daily schedules and follow up on work problems encountered.

Feature 2


Methods are developed that will allow the greatest "through-put" using the fewest hours. This means that product is handled efficiently throughout the receiving, stocking, picking, and loading processes.

Feature 3


Finally, after standards have been proven accurate, both individual and group incentive programs are installed.
