The Power of Scale

Industries Served

Our vast scale across nine thriving industries allows us to do things for our members that other buying and marketing groups simply cannot. It’s these innovative programs and services – tailored to each division by experienced industry veterans – that allow our members to compete with the national chains and outperform the competition.

AD is always growing, both by helping our members thrive and through mergers and acquisitions. As we grow stronger, so do our distributors and supplier partners. Everyone benefits from the efficiencies our scale creates and our ability to invest in the people and the programs that drive growth and profitability.
