National Buying Group (NBG) has continued its strong performance in 2021, adding an additional eight Suppliers across the Brick & Block, Roofing & Insulation, Timber, Tools & Workwear and Decorating & Hardware categories.

NBG Partner’s will benefit from an increased offering in the Brick and Block category as Mansfield Brick Co Ltd join with 181 years of expertise and great deals, currently producing products ranging from concrete commons and coursings to brick slips and closure blocks.

U Value Insulation Ltd has become the latest Supplier to join the Roofing and Insulation category, bringing an extensive variety of products and a reliable service, already distributing to a large number of customers nationwide.

The Timber category is also experiencing growth as it welcomes Magply. The new Supplier will be providing great deals on products including a Fire Protection range and Multi-Purpose Boards.

Two more Suppliers have also joined the Tools & Workwear category. Regatta Ltd has an unparalleled reputation in the outdoor clothing market and NBG Partners will now have access to the Tactical Threads clothing line. Partners will also be able to enjoy the extensive benefits offered by the arrival of Progressive Safety Footwear & Clothing, one of the UK’s leading distributors of safety footwear, protective workwear, personal protective equipment and workplace safety products, which also has the license for JCB workwear.

NBG’s Decorating & Hardware team continues to go from strength-to-strength and after adding three new Suppliers in January, the category is now welcoming an additional three Suppliers.

Rothley Limited joins as one of the leading European suppliers of DIY and builder’s products and hardware components, with over 190 years of experience. They will be joined by Samac Fixings Ltd, a distributor based in Essex which will provide non-ferrous products to Partners including nails, screws and fixings. Big Wipes, the market leading industrial wipes expert, supplying a wide range of specialist cleaning and disinfecting products for professional tradespeople is also now on board.

Managing Director at NBG, Nick Oates, said: “The new Suppliers joining NBG will provide a great range of deals for our Partners and their customers. All eight Suppliers will provide a unique product offering and an elite level of expertise that will be great to have within the NBG community.

“The continued growth of the group is another promising step as the independent merchant sector begins to recover. Our collaborative approach and ever-growing range of diverse product deals will hopefully help Partners and Suppliers as they continue to grow.”
