Online builders' merchant offers 40,000+ SKUs

October 2018

Established in 2010, Business Supplies Online claims to offer the broadest choice of competitively-priced, quality building products direct to trade professionals and the public.  The firm began as an online aggregates business and has expanded its product range in response to customer requirements.

With backgrounds in digital marketing and construction, founders Craig and Ian Baldwin, questioned the efficiency of the traditional distribution model for building supplies and saw an opportunity to offer a smarter, more convenient and cost-effective way to buy building products.  Building Supplies Online says it has created real value for its suppliers and customers, resulting in increased reach and market share for its suppliers and increased choice and competitive pricing for its customers.

Over the last eight years the range of products has grown to over 40,000 SKUs, covering construction materials, tiules, bathrooms, roofing supplies, roof windows, and doors.  Importantly, Building Supplies Online is able to offer an extensive variety of competitively-priced building products, without comprising quality or performance. This is achieved through inventive and ethical sourcing and by working with a trusted supply chain, allowing the company to pass savings straight to customers.

In 2017 the company entered into a strategic partnership with specialist investor, Cairngorm Capital Partners.  Benefiting from the industry know-how and global best practice that its partner is able to offer, Building Supplies Online has secured the specialist sector expertise and financial support to fuel its ambitious growth plans. Investment in infrastructure, marketing and the expansion of its product range and distribution networks will accelerate the scale and range of the business for the benefit of customers and suppliers alike.
