Vallen Distribution, a distributor of indirect industrial, metalworking, and safety supplies and services, has joined AD. 

Vallen North America — which has locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico — was recently acquired from Sonepar by Nautic Partners, LLC, in partnership with management. 

The distributor joins AD as a member in six AD divisions across three countries: Industrial & Safety, U.S.; Electrical, U.S.; Safety Network; Industrial & Safety, Canada; Electrical Canada; and AD Mexico. 

 “Over Vallen’s 150-year history, we’ve developed enduring relationships with our customers and suppliers,” said Chuck Delph, CEO of Vallen North America. “As we return to the community of independent distributors, AD’s value-added programs and multi-divisional capabilities made AD an obvious choice for a partner as we look to build on our proven value.” 

Vallen and AD both announced the agreement June 9.

“I’ve been incredibly impressed with Chuck and his team throughout the process of getting to know each other,” AD Chairman & CEO Bill Weisberg said. “They are smart, professional and action-oriented. They’re going to be a great fit with the AD community. I’m also very grateful to our owner/member Boards and our divisional teams in the U.S., Canada and Mexico for their vision, work, and support to bring this about.”
