The Scale of AD Meets the Power of eCommerce.
eCommerce is the fastest growing sales channel in today’s professional market, and AD has invested in the tools and resources to provide our supplier partners with an easy and cost-effective way to reach hundreds of distributors with consumerized product data.
AD eCommerce Solutions leverages AD’s scale and community to enable members to achieve their eCommerce objectives and win in an evolving digital world. AD’s size and scale allows us to buy SKU production capacity rather than a pay-per-SKU model.
AD has supplier advisory councils and they also have member committees that really look for the next thing that's happening. They're watching trends, they're talking about what's happening on a local basis. As they accumulate this information and have conversations, they're really positioning themselves for the next level of growth. Not just the next year, but the next three to five years or the next percentage or the next billion. We're glad to have that connection, that opportunity to be a part of what's next.Supplier Partner since 2010
