About Us

Advantage Inventory Service was founded in 1989 by George Nilson and Gordon Alexander. After working for a larger, nationwide inventory service, they left with a desire to provide a higher quality inventory service option to small businesses in the southeast. Based at their office in Memphis, they quickly added clients who desired the quality work they provided and by 1994 they were considered by many to be the highest quality in the Memphis area. Over the years, the company steadily grew, mostly just by word of mouth. 


In 2003, George Nilson became the sole owner, as Gordon wanted to begin his transition to retirement. 


In 2005, Tyler Nilson, George's son began working part-time on weekends and during the summer. By 2007, he began working for the company full-time and started to grow into a leadership role. 


In 2016, Tyler Nilson expanded the company to open an office in Nashville. 


Today, we are proud to say that many of our clients have been with us for over 20 years, some since the very beginning.
