Benchmark Building Supplies is the North West’s leading Independent Builders Merchant, trading from seven trading locations around the M60 Greater Manchester Inner Ring road.
They deliver building materials to a live customer base of over 1200 construction companies of varying sizes. Founded in 1996, they identified a niche in the marketplace where the general builder was being neglected, he had lost his identity and was treated as a number, not as a customer. Benchmark set out to put that right. Some years on and with a turnover exceeding £12m their loyal customer base recognises service and quality as the norm, prices are competitive and deliveries are always made on time.
They are committed to working in ways that are good for their business and good for the communities of the Greater Manchester area which they serve. They pledge to contribute to sustainable development and to work with their employees, their families, local communities and society at large for the good of all.
Benchmark believes it has a Corporate and Social Responsibility to put things back into the Greater Manchester communities they serve. All of their staff are openly encouraged to carry out work in the community for charity functions and fundraising activities.
Phill Brown MBE, Managing Director of Benchmark Building Supplies says: “As a company we are keen to support our local communities and with 7 depots across Greater Manchester we felt that Forever Manchester provided a unique and meaningful way for us to support projects close to where we operate as a company and where our employees live.”
