August 11, 2021 – AD reports member sales in the first six months of 2021 were $28.1 billion—an increase of 30% across its 13 divisions.

“The exceptionally strong results we’re experiencing in the first half of 2021 are setting the stage for a record-breaking year,” said AD’s chair & CEO Bill Weisberg.

Same-store sales were up 17%. Purchases by member companies from AD supplier partners were up 34%. Net distributions to its members were up 37%.

“When we see growth in member purchases from AD suppliers outpacing total sales, it serves as a powerful indicator that our community of members and supplier partners finds great value from preferentially supporting each other.”


AD is a member-owned, North American marketing/buying group for construction and industrial supplies. Its 850-plus independent member owners span 13 divisions (including electrical) in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
