85% of the built environment you see is around in the UK is supplied by builders’ merchants. Merchants and their suppliers are crucial to construction, which each year contributes more than £40 billion to the UK economy.
The Builders Merchant industry is made up builders’ and plumbers’ merchants, timber merchants and other specialist businesses who stock and supply products and materials to construction companies, tradespeople and the general public.
Their role is pivotal to ongoing built environment as they deliver orders and advise customers on which products to use for a particular job/s. Merchants up and down the country are supplied by suppliers and manufacturers who fabricate/refine the raw materials/products.
