Last updated in Summer 2021, the information provided includes named individuals, with buying authority or influence, at over 260 of the UK’s largest builders merchant chains which we estimate account for more 10,000 branches. The database covers only the industry’s chains (defined as those with more than one branch), so local, single-branch firms, have been omitted. All the firms that appear in the latest Top 20 league table published by Professional Builders Merchant magazine have been included.
In addition to the contact name, the information for each entry also includes the number of branches for each firm, the primary activity (i.e. heavyside, lightside, timber, etc.), address, telephone number, and website. Email addresses have been included with approximately 75% being name-specific to the contact name buyer, the remainder being generic – buying@… info@…., etc.). We have also included the social media links (where possible) for LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
