AD and SafetyNetwork Finalize Merger Agreement

AD has finalized the merger agreement with Tampa-based SafetyNetwork and set Jan. 1, 2021, as the closing date, creating AD’s only safety-dedicated division focused on the growth of independent distributors specializing in the safety market.

This milestone comes after a late-February vote in which SafetyNetwork’s independent members overwhelmingly voted in favor to merge the two groups.     

This partnership will create the AD Safety Network Division, which will be led by Marisol Fernandez who is also the president of the Industrial and Safety–U.S. Division.


AD Chairman and CEO Bill Weisberg continues to see tremendous benefits for existing members resulting from this merger.
