U.S. and AD Safety Network awarded members for growth and sales performance during their recent 2023 Spring Network Meeting in Tampa, Florida, the independent distributor organization said April 3.

Every year, members receive category growth awards recognizing the member companies that “significantly grow their business and are seen as leaders among their peers,” AD said in a news release.

Divisional staff presented the following companies with 2022 AD Member Growth awards:

“Our members made great strides in 2022 to grow with our suppliers and increase their involvement with AD’s programs,” said Marisol Fernandez, President of the Electrical & Industrial Business Unit. “The winners tonight and everyone that makes up our Industrial & Safety — U.S. and Safety Network divisions deserve to be proud of your accomplishments and hard work for your businesses.”

During the ceremony, Mike Carr — President of Industrial & Safety Divisions — recognized Chris Bateman, CEO of Industrial Supply Company for his years of support to AD and the Industrial & Safety – U.S. division. Bateman (seen in the feature photo of this article) was one of the founding members of the division in 1994 and has served on numerous boards and committees to support the growth of members and suppliers, AD said.
