BMBI launches new website

Published:  05 September, 2016

The Builders Merchant Building Index's (BMBI) new website is now live. Visitors to the new website can access the latest monthly and quarterly indexes, download past reports, read the BMBI Expert comments and get in touch with the Experts directly.

An interactive chart facility enables visitors to look at trends and compare different market sectors. John Newcomb, managing director of the BMF, said: “Since its launch last year, awareness of the BMBI has grown strongly

“There is an active twitter feed with over 2,000 followers already. A new website gives it a focus and a platform so we can build awareness and understanding of the importance of builders’ merchants and their suppliers in the economy.”

The BMBI is a brand of the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF). Launched and managed by MRA Marketing, it fills a gap in the UK’s measure of building activity. The Index uses data from GfK’s General Builders’ Merchant Panel, with input from national and regional builders’ merchants accounting for over 80% of industry sales.
