IBC began in 2008 supporting just a few independent merchants in London. Today, we are the leading buying group for developing independent builders' merchants across the UK

We have more than 10 years’ experience and a dedicated team of full-time professionals with industry-wide expertise. We have an unrivalled understanding of the needs of independent builders’ merchants, and use this to provide them with what’s important: Partnership, Strength, and Value.

We negotiate and deliver exceptional deals and offer great support to our members, and specialise in working with independent builders’ merchants who are developing their businesses and going from strength-to-strength.

We have brought a number of firsts to the industry:

  • We have established key working relationships with 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 relationship with NMBS has allowed us to bring greater support and benefits to our members, so they can run their business successfully. 

With more than 200 members across the UK, we have established ourselves as a key voice in the industry. Our strong relationships with the UK’s leading suppliers allow us to offer all the assets our members need to succeed and grow their business.
