More than 8,000 builders’ merchants
A new breed of tradespeople now make up the market – ones who rely on merchants as their sole source of building products, consumables and heavy-side goods. This increase in demand – along with the continued emphasis and growth of housebuilding, has seen buying groups expand through mergers and acquisitions. These now multi-national networks now operate alongside a larger number of independents – who have also scaled up in recent years.
Not only has this all combined to create a market that shows no signs of slowing down, but it’s also created a market worth in excess of £5 billion. Furthermore, it presents a wealth of valuable opportunities for companies to win new business.
Combining both large national networks and independent Builders Merchants, the database provides the detailed information needed to connect with buyers and key decision-makers. Businesses can then promote their products and services by telephone, in-person or via a high-impact direct mail or email campaign.
