TORBSA Merges With AD

TORBSA Limited and AD, a contractor and wholesale buying group, are merging. TORBSA’s strong leadership and financial success makes it the ideal match for AD, says Rob Dewar, president of AD Canada. “The relationship will help us provide more benefits for members, including an increased supplier portfolio.” The merger will create a new division: AD Canada – Building Supplies. Paul Williams, TORBSA president, will head the division while reporting to Dewar, and three additional TORBSA employees will join the AD team. A key priority for AD has been to grow its presence in Canada and the merger marks another significant point of growth for the group. “AD brings decades of experience, strong leadership throughout the organization, with strong business ethics and core values that align with our own,” says Williams. “Its scale and expertise across North America give us the strength to compete and succeed in an ever-changing marketplace.” The merger is expected to close July 1.
