June 9, 2022 – Vallen Distribution—a distributor of indirect industrial, metalworking, and safety supplies and services—has joined AD, North America’s largest marketing/buying group for construction and industrial supplies.
“Over Vallen’s 150-year history, we’ve developed enduring relationships with our customers and suppliers,” said Chuck Delph, CEO of Vallen North America. “As we return to the community of independent distributors, AD’s value-added programs and multi-divisional capabilities made AD an obvious choice for a partner as we look to build on our proven value.”
Vallen joins AD Canada as a member in Electrical and Industrial & Safety.
“I’ve been incredibly impressed with Chuck and his team throughout the process of getting to know each other. They are smart, professional and action oriented. They’re going to be a great fit with the AD community,” said Bill Weisberg, AD chair & CEO.
“I’m also very grateful to our owner/member band our divisional teams in the U.S., Canada and Mexico for their vision, work, and support to bring this about,” Weisberg added.
AD’s memberships comprises 845-plus independently owned member distributors, representing over 500 branches and annual sales of $58.5 billion across nine industries and three countries.
