AD Member Sales

AD, the US$31 billion contractor and industrial products wholesale buying/marketing group, reports that sales for all AD members, across all seven divisions and three countries, grew by 3% in 2015 Q3 YTD to US$25.4 billion.

"Strong growth in residential and commercial markets was offset by increased softness within some industrial segments and lower copper prices,” says AD Chairman and CEO Bill Weisberg. “However, AD’s scale and efficiency ensures that 100% of supplier rebates are distributed to our members and allows us to invest in people, services and innovative programs to support the business growth and profitability of our Members. For example, the AD eContent Service program is enabling us to take the battle we fight, on behalf of independents, onto the internet.

"Across seven divisions and three countries, with more than $31 Billion in annual sales; ,nearly 4,000 locations, over 500 independently owned members, and with 55,000 employees, there is no entity that rivals AD for commitment to independent distribution," says Weisberg.

AD provides independent distributors and manufacturers of construction and industrial products with support and resources that accelerate growth. The organization has 570+ plus independently owned members spanning seven industries and three countries: electrical, industrial, plumbing, PVF, HVAC, building materials, and bearings & power transmission.
