We are very proud of the relationship we have with NMBS. They offer a valuable service to their customers and we are proud to support them through their marketing activites and initiatives.
For us they play a strong role in reaching the independent merchants. That's why we've been partnering with from over 20 years.

H+H is very aware that the independent merchant sector is an essential part of our business. Knowing this, we find the opportunities presented by NMBS allow us not only to understand and interact with members via the NMBS commercial team
but to formulate and structure trading partnerships throghout the group. These partnerships are invaluable to developing and maintaining our independent merchant business.In addition the single point of invoice provision, combined with the reassurance of
an established merchant route to market makes the NMBS relationship very important to H+H and one that we hope to maintain and grow.

Klargester holds the alliance with NMBS in very high regard. Our trading partnership stretches back over twenty five years and in that time, the benefits delivered by NMBS in reaching the
independent merchant have been fundamental in making Klargester the name in off mains drainage. As our relationship passes its jubilee year , NMBS continues to be a cornerstone of our business.

There are many benefits of being a member of NMBS from the easy account opening facilities to over 400 leading manufacturers to the great administration savings from dealing with one account.
We believe NMBS can add to the bottom line of all Independent Merchants with the settlement and discounts offered as well as the additional opportunities to earn more rebate.
We have no hesitation in recommending membership of NMBS to any Independent Merchant.

NMBS offers a great route for invoice clearing and gives us administration savings on how we process our purchase invoices and helps us with query management via their online report centre.
We believe all independent merchants can benefit by being part of NMBS and MKM Building Supplies are regular attendess to the Annual NMBS Trade Exhibition, where we take opportunity to earn extra
rebates and discounts which are only available at the event.
MKM Building Supplies (Hull) LTD
We have been members for circa forty years and cannot imagine trading as an Independent Builders Merchant without NMBS. The benefits are many, but important to our business is the vast majority of the Industries 'Brands' are available to us.
NMBS help us achieve the very best deal at Invoice level and this is enhanced by utilising the efficiencies that NMBS systems offer, such as the online facility where we can access documentation at the touch of a button. Having one centralised payment point for numerous suppliers, together with a statement that is easily reconciled, makes for a very efficient business without the exorbitant administrations costs.
Perry Eyre - The Builders Centre
NMBS have a large number of suppliers within their network giving us immediate
account facilities. The added benefit of dealing with only one account reduces
administration costs. The online facility for access to invoices, credits and statements makes the accounts easier to manage. Settlement Discounts and Rebates make NMBS membership particularly rewarding.

One of the most rewarding decisions we have made was to become a member of NMBS. The biggest advantage of trading with NMBS is the immediate access to scores of smaller manufacturers and distributors with whom we would not otherwise have account facilities in place.

After many meetings and discussions with Brendan McNally, mainly because we doubted his story of extra terms, we joined the National Merchant Buying Society in August 2009.
Since joining, we have been delighted with the improvement in our purchasing terms. We thought we were doing a good job before we joined NMBS, but our deals have improved way beyond what we thought was possible for a small independent merchant.
The joining membership fee was recovered in the first few weeks of membership.
Brendan and the team at Leicester have been very helpful at all times. Thank you.
Richard Reynolds - Huntingdon Timber & Roofing Supplies
NMBS really do champion the cause of the Independent Merchant, giving them access to a large number of key suppliers and their impressive range of offers
John Levitt - J H Young
NMBS membership has been a massive boost to my business both in terms of adding to my profits and giving me the ability to meet and work with like-minded independents.
After becoming Chair of the NMBS Hardware & Timber Committee I worked closely with the team at NMBS and fellow members of the committee to improve the promotional offers to members and to ensure that we could meet all the buying needs of our members. I believe that members of NMBS have a duty to give something back, even if it is as simple as supporting the many deals on offer, as without the support of the membership we cannot continue to be as strong as we are today.
David Dickens - NMBS Hardware & Timber Committee Chairman - Martin & Partners Ltd
I have no hesitation in recommending membership of NMBS to any independent merchant.
We have been a member of NMBS for over 30 years and have no hesitation in recommending any independent to join. My company has profited in many ways from the huge variety of benefits the NMBS has to offer, not only when we first joined but also when I became a member of the NMBS Plumbing Committee, which provides me with some great networking opportunities along with bang up to the minute information on what is happening in our industry.
