Company History

In 1997 Buildbase was established as the trading name for Grafton Group’s UK builders merchanting operation.

More recently Buildbase has added Direct Builders Merchants, Crescent Building Supplies and Beaumont Forest Products to its operation.

Today Buildbase operates from branches across the country and also has a large online offering.

Buildbase offers 1000’s of core products, and is proud of being competitive on price. Next day delivery service is offered on all products and customers can open a 30 day trade credit account, meaning they have up to 60 days to pay for the material they need.

Buildbase offers a vast range of products from building materials, roofing, timber, tools & fixings, clothing & safety, painting & decorating, kitchens & bathrooms and landscaping & fencing.
