MBS goes countrywide with ecommerce offering

Independent builders merchant, MBS Site Supplies, has unveiled its new ecommerce website, providing small to medium sized builders with the same unique product offering as its regional operation.

MBS goes countrywide with ecommerce offering

The firm launched in Liverpool just over 12 months ago, targeting the small to medium sized contracting market, recognising a clear gap in the market on a local level.

The website offers free, guaranteed next day delivery on all stocked site and construction supplies throughout the UK. With no minimum order value, the company offers the same service at the exact same price to every contractor.

Growth and interest since the company’s launch has been beyond expectations with MBS significantly developing its product and service offering.

Carl Oates, managing director of MBS, said: “We knew that the larger contractors and house builders were always given preferential treatment by the larger merchants, putting some of the smaller outfits at a disadvantage. The business model for MBS focused on offering this group a like for like service, giving them all the perks of a much bigger business.

“We have managed to perfect this model locally and whilst we have plans to roll this out regionally via branches we wanted to invest in an ecommerce website so that customers could access this service and the many benefits it offers throughout the UK in the meantime.”

MBS stocks over 250 products with access to a further 1000 on a 3-5 working day lead time basis, including ladders, towers and access equipment.

“We’re really excited about our product offering and the positive attention that were getting, particularly from our target customer group who have been all too often overlooked in the past (in our opinion) by nationally recognised competitors,” added Oates.
