Benchmark Building Supplies are a North West’s based Builders Merchant, trading from seven trading locations around the M60 Greater Manchester Inner Ring road.
Our fleet of eleven crane off load vehicles deliver more than 100 drops every day, supplying building materials to a live customer base of over 1200 construction companies of varying sizes.
Founded in 1996, we 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. We at Benchmark set out to put that right. Some years on and with a turnover exceeding £12m, our perception was right all along. Our loyal customer base recognises service and quality as the norm, prices are competitive and deliveries are always made on time.
We have secured many large Public Sector contracts and have become suppliers to many of local authorities and large housing associations throughout the North West. Our success has been largely down to the company employees, who we see as our most asset. Their commitment and loyalty know no bounds and a clear majority of staff have been handpicked and headhunted for their specific skills and expertise.
In 2016 Benchmark was acquired by Saint-Gobain which enables us to retain our high quality levels of service but gives us access to a much wider product range to ensure we can get our customers exactly what they require.
