  • Our confidence in the AD leadership team is such that APR, to a large degree, can sit back and entrust the pros to do their job of partnering with the premier manufacturers and negotiating the best programs. We are able to concentrate on growing our business knowing AD will ensure APR remains competitive on the buy side of our business.

    Scott Weaver, President, APR Supply Member since 2008
  • The end result is having a network ‘Brain Trust’ that helps us develop ways to serve our customers better and ultimately be more productive and profitable independent distributors.

    Allie Lehman, VP Operations, Standard Supply Member since 2006
  • AD is best-in-class in every single thing I can think of that's important to an affiliate. AD anticipates the needs of the affiliates and their suppliers. It's not just negotiating rebates, which they do phenomenally, it's also the other things that AD provides. The AD Education Center, the AD HR Services, these are services that I haven't seen other buying groups offer their affiliates and their suppliers. Having that support with AD really helps so that we can set ourselves above our competitors that are not in AD.

    Lindsay Portnoy Rodner, Marketing Manager, Aaron and Company, Inc. Member since 2008
  • The fact that AD returns over one hundred percent of the rebates is a real differentiating value that they offer to the independents, as well as to the suppliers – it enables the independents to be competitive and win more business, which benefits the suppliers as well. The most important thing I would say to another supplier who's considering joining AD is to leverage the relationships. There's a lot of industry knowledge and partnering, and it really enables a win-win situation between the independents, between the organization and between the suppliers as well. We've been really pleased with the relationship and the results.
