Established in 2008 IBC started life supporting just a few independent merchants in London. Today IBC is the leading buying group for the Independent Builders Merchant.
Now with over 10 years’ experience and a dedicated team of sixteen full time buying group professionals, we negotiate and deliver exceptional deals and great support for our members. During this time, we have built an unrivaled understanding of independent merchants’ needs and use this to provide what’s important for them, partnership, value, and strength.
Over the years IBC has seen a number of firsts come our way. We have established key working relationships with both the BMF and NMBS. In 2014 we introduced 50 IBC members to the BMF, showing the benefits that their organisation can offer the Independent Merchant. Our close relationships with NMBS has allowed us to bring greater support and benefits for our members so they can run their business successfully.
With over 210 members across the UK, we have now established ourselves as a key voice in the industry and our strong relationships with the UK’s leading suppliers allows us to offer all the assets our members need to succeed.
