AD has recently announced that Vallen Distribution, a distributor of indirect industrial, metalworking, and safety supplies and services, with locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, has joined AD.

Dating to 1865, Vallen has a rich legacy of distribution companies that came together under Sonepar in 2014. Vallen North America was recently acquired by Nautic Partners, LLC, in partnership with management.

Vallen joins AD as a member in six AD divisions across three countries: Industrial & Safety, U.S.; Electrical, U.S.; Safety Network; Industrial & Safety, Canada; Electrical Canada; and AD Mexico.

“Over Vallen’s 150-year history, we’ve developed enduring relationships with our customers and suppliers,” said Chuck Delph, CEO of Vallen North America. “As we return to the community of independent distributors, AD’s value-added programs and multi-divisional capabilities made AD an obvious choice for a partner as we look to build on our proven value.”

AD Chairman & CEO Bill Weisberg commented, “I’ve been incredibly impressed with Chuck and his team throughout the process of getting to know each other. They are smart, professional and action oriented. They’re going to be a great fit with the AD community. I’m also very grateful to our owner/member Boards and our divisional teams in the U.S., Canada and Mexico for their vision, work, and support to bring this about.”
