AD six-month sales up 30 percent

AD reported that member sales in the first six months of 2021 were $28.1 billion, an increase of 30 percent across its 13 divisions and three countries.

Same-store sales were up 17 percent. Purchases by member companies from AD supplier partners were up 34 percent. Net distributions to its members were up 37 percent.

“The exceptionally strong results we’re experiencing in the first half of 2021 are setting the stage for a record-breaking year,” said Bill Weisberg, AD chairman and CEO. “When we see growth in member purchases from AD suppliers outpacing total sales, it serves as a powerful indicator that our community of members and supplier partners finds great value from preferentially supporting each other.”
