Industrial Distribution Group, Belmont, NC, has joined Affiliated Distributors’ Industrial Supply Division.
IDG is No. 23 on MDM’s list of the top 40 industrial distributors.
“The strength of any organization is the accumulation of the quality of its members,” said Jeff Bigelow, chairman of AD’s Industrial Supply Division board. Bigelow is also president of Hubbard Supply. “Adding a quality distributor like IDG, with a business model that is consistent with our members and an impressive growth trajectory, strengthens our entire division.”
“I believe in having a limited supply base similar to AD,” said Charlie Lingenfelter, IDG president and CEO. “The AD conventions and the market planning process is a very disciplined approach to managing the sales and marketing process within both the supplier and distributor The networking with the AD organization is also invaluable to a distributor.”
