AD and Torbsa Limited, a building supplies buying group, based in Canada, announced they will merge the two groups. The merger is expected to close on July 1, 2022, and will create a new division: AD Canada – Building Supplies.
“Torbsa has been a leader in this space for a long time, and our new relationship will help us provide more benefits to members, including an increased supplier portfolio. We both share a passion for serving independents and helping them thrive in competitive markets, and we’re honoured to have them join the AD community,” AD Canada President Rob Dewar said.
Torbsa is a shareholder-owned group consisting of 27 independent building supplies distributors, with 48 locations across Canada. Torbsa President Paul Williams will head the group’s new division while reporting to Dewar.
