Wayne, PA-based AD, the largest contractor and industrial products wholesale buying group in North America, has announced its intent to merge with Tampa, FL-based SafetyNetwork. The partnership will create the AD Safety Network Division, the organization’s only safety-dedicated division focused on the growth of independent distributors specializing in the safety market. Marisol Fernandez, president of AD’s Industrial and Safety U.S. Division, will lead the new safety division. Fernandez said both organizations see benefits for all constituents. “We’re honored to have the opportunity to welcome the SafetyNetwork members to the AD family and excited about the future of independent distributors in this segment,” she said.
