Get to Know Industrial Distribution…

  • Network with Distributors and Manufacturers
  • Keep Up with Industry Trends
  • Be Prepared for Tomorrow's Challenges

The Western Association of Industrial Distributors (WAID), formerly Associated Bearing and Power Transmission Distributors (AB&PTD) is a "company membership" organization represented by both large and small distributors and manufacturers. Company designated individuals attend our conventions and benefit from the speakers and from the networking opportunities.

WAID has successfully developed a place for manufacturers and distributors to network in a friendly, fun atmosphere. WAID provides the opportunity to build productive and lasting relationships that are vital in our industry.

The membership application is quite simple. Joining our organization is as easy as completing and returning the form with the annual dues. (Click Here for Membership Application.) We are looking forward to having your company as our newest member.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call our association office at (916) 850-5658.
