NMBS is launching a year-long campaign of promotion for its independent merchant members, focusing on businesses old and new, large and small, wherever they are in the UK.
The NMBS has declared 2024 as the “year of the independent builders’ merchant”.
Through profile-building case studies and social media campaigns, the campaign will be celebrating the success stories and strong relationships created between independent merchants, suppliers and local trades, sharing tips and insights into how best to weather what is expected to be an uncertain year ahead, and make the most of the new business opportunities in their local area.

“So we believe that, in shining a spotlight on NMBS independent members in this way, we can boost local economies and support the vital relationships between suppliers, merchants and installers. It’s by developing and nurturing these business relationships that we can all thrive in 2024.”
