Over 20 Years of Growing Stronger
Our operations in Canada began over 20 years ago and today represents over 20% of our volume. AD continues to grow through successful mergers and an ever-expanding network of independent distributors and best-in-class supplier partners.
All of our members are Canadian owned and operated. They are local market leaders with a passion for growing their businesses through entrepreneurial thinking and strong service. As we’ve grown together, so has our ability to create efficiencies and invest in the people and the programs that drive growth and profitability.
Every AD Canada member and supplier has a real voice in our operations. Through their AD Canada Divisional Boards, they oversee local operations and control all programmatic decisions. And our dedicated local associates are passionate about ensuring the success of our members and suppliers in their home country.
As we look to the future, we believe that AD is uniquely positioned to help independents and suppliers across Canada grow and prosper in an age of increasing consolidation, globalization and channel convergence. We look forward to continuing to grow stronger, together.
