  • If you're thinking about joining AD, here's one piece of advice I'd offer. No doubt the financial return is significant and reason alone to join, but the real value that's often overlooked is the value that the staff at AD, member distributors and best-in-class suppliers bring to your organization. I can honestly say Shealy Electrical would not be where we are today without the help and guidance we've received from the community provided by AD.

  • We are really excited about the AD rewards program. It's been a wonderful program for us. What we like about it is it gets to the front lines, both the inside sales and the counter people, and connects our salespeople with them, working on training, working on promotions, working on new products – and the results have been outstanding for us.

    John Hoffman, Executive VP Sales & Demand Creation, Legrand Wiremold Supplier Partner since 2004
  • We looked at AD as the best possible fit for networking and gaining economies of scale in multiple industries.
