NBG membership gives Partners excellent terms and reliable service and delivery on many of the construction industry’s key brands. Our suppliers are provided with access to a national network of independent businesses through a single agreement.
By combining buying power, our Partners achieve more favourable supplier trading terms than they would on their own. Agreements are tendered on a regular basis (usually after two years) to ensure NBG’s terms remain competitive and fair.
We operate eight Category Management Teams (CMTs) which incorporate all of the key products groups. These teams are made up of Partner representatives, usually the Principal of the business, who are experts in the field. Supported by our professional Buyer, they are best placed to get the best deal for the Group. This means that all Partners have access to better and more numerous deals across all of their key products than they would negotiate as a single merchant, saving time, money and effort by sharing the workload.
As Brand Ambassadors, NBG Partners support and promote Supplier brands, and do not seek to establish an ‘own brand’.
The means that end users and customers receive expert advice from local contacts they already trust. Supplier brands enjoy a local presence, nationally, with visibility and reach increased through displays and promotions, ultimately leading to increased market awareness and buy in.
We work with more than 185 suppliers across 300+ agreements, including these suppliers who attended the 2016 NBG Conference:
