AD Difference
The best independents with the best manufacturers

The best way to grow any business is to build a great team and work with great companies.

AD members are true market leaders dedicated to the pursuit of excellence and growth. AD manufacturers are progressive manufacturers who value independents and invest in their growth and profitability. When truly great companies come together, the result is above market growth and above market profitability.

Every AD member and manufacturer has a real voice in our operations

The AD Board of Directors oversees the finances of the group and is comprised of distributor representatives from each AD Division. The AD Electrical Division Boards (U.S. and Canada) set divisional strategy and review and approve divisional programs, new members, new manufacturers and are composed of representatives from each AD Electrical Network.

The Electrical Division is managed by a dedicated staff that follows the direction of our members and manufacturers through a highly representative committee structure.
