The Plumbing Marketing Committee provides guidance and feedback on various marketing programs and initiatives to reinforce the value of partnering with AD.
AD truly cares and helps its members and supplier partners. ‘Together, we win.’ is more than a slogan, it is the AD culture in which a truly representative form of governance looks at every decision. All new programs and strategies are voted on by the member led boards. All networks are represented on the board, so you know your interests are considered before a decision is made. The bigger you get, the harder this is to accomplish, but AD does it well. That is impressive to me.Member since 2004
The best practices sessions are very valuable to our company. The rebates in the group obviously are important, but equally important are the discussions that arise when we find out we have common problems in our businesses. It helps to find out how members address those programs.Member since 2001
The fact that AD returns over one hundred percent of the rebates is a real differentiating value that they offer to the independents, as well as to the suppliers – it enables the independents to be competitive and win more business, which benefits the suppliers as well. The most important thing I would say to another supplier who's considering joining AD is to leverage the relationships. There's a lot of industry knowledge and partnering, and it really enables a win-win situation between the independents, between the organization and between the suppliers as well. We've been really pleased with the relationship and the results.Supplier Partner since 2008
