UK: The ‘I Love Independents’ campaign was launched in February this year with the core objective of raising the many benefits the professional tradesman and end user gain from trading with the Independent Merchant.

NMBS are excited to share with you the latest upcoming initiative, which is the ‘I Love Independents’ day challenge on the 4th July 2011.
