Affiliated Distributor Member Sales Up 3% In Q3 YTD

AD says strong growth in residential and commercial markets was offset by increased softness within some industrial segments and lower copper prices.

WAYNE, PA — Affiliated Distributors (AD), the $31 billion contractor and industrial products wholesale buying/marketing group, reported sales for all AD members, across all seven Divisions and three countries, grew by 3 percent in the third quarter of 2015 Q3 year-to-date to $25.4 billion.

Bill Weisberg, AD’s Chairman and CEO comments on the results, "Strong growth in residential and commercial markets was offset by increased softness within some industrial segments and lower copper prices. However, AD’s scale and efficiency ensures that 100 percent of supplier rebates are distributed to our members and allows us to invest in people, services and innovative programs to support the business growth and profitability of our Members. For example, The AD eContent Service program is enabling us to take the battle we fight, on behalf of independents, onto the internet."  

Weisberg continues, "Across seven divisions and three countries; with more than $31 Billion in annual sales; nearly 4,000 locations, over 500 independently owned members, and with 55,000 employees there is no entity that rivals AD for commitment to independent distribution."
