B&D Industrial, Norcross, Georgia, announced Thursday that it has joined AD’s Industrial and Safety division to enhance its regional presence in industrial and safety products.

The industrial distributor was one of the founding members of the Affiliated Distributors’ Bearings and Power Transmission division in 2015. AD is in North America’s largest marketing/buying group for construction and industrial supplies and has been servicing these markets for nearly 40 years.

“We are excited to welcome B&D Industrial into the Industrial and Safety U.S. Division of AD,” said Tim Babcock, director of AD member development. “B&D Industrial has a long history of success across multiple industries. AD’s multi-divisional approach, along with B&D Industrial’s focus on multi-market segments, made this a perfect fit.”

“B&D Industrial’s membership in AD’s Bearings and Power Transmission division has brought immense value to our organization as well as our customers,” said Ben Nations, executive vice president of B&D. “The next logical step was to enhance our product offering to our customers via new supplier relationships through the Industrial and Safety Division.”
