Builders’ Merchants News, the magazine read by UK builders’ merchants, focuses on business and marketing – assisting merchants in determining and evaluating the products and services they sell to their customers.

Let Builders’ Merchants News help you plan, create and deliver your message to an audience of 7800 readers. Builders’ Merchants News targets the independent merchant and national merchant on every level. The majority of its readers are directors, owners and branch managers from key independent and national merchants.

With nearly 40 years of experience within the industry and, with a rapidly growing portfolio of products that are targeted solely at UK merchants, Builders’ Merchants News is perfectly placed to get your sales message and campaign to the decision-makers that matter.

Download our 2016 Media Pack and Features List., launched in May 2009, has grown to be one of the most used sites in the UK by builders’ merchants, timber merchants, plumbers' merchants and other construction-related merchants, who want to keep up- to-date with their industry. It is also the only UK site to have its news updated every working day.

Topics covered on  range across everything that can effect the merchant, from environmental issues such as SUDS and the Renewable Heat Incentive, to legislation that impacts on managing business such as health and safety, tax implications and human resource management.

Builders’ Merchants News is the only industry magazine to run the Builders' Merchants News Awards – a gala event that recognises, celebrates and rewards the industry’s top professionals and their companies.

The Awards recognise the hard work and planning that goes into making business a success and are open to all merchants, whether they are a small company or a large national one.
