Independent builders merchant buying group h&b has developed a partnership with construction intelligence provider of Barbour ABI. The deal will see h&b members benefitting from access to thousands of verified leads generated by Barbour ABI’s team of researchers and partners.
h&b merchant members across the UK will now have access to information and intelligence from ABI Barbour, collated by an eighty-strong team of researchers along with ABI Barbour’s strategic partners including the ONS, Contraction Products Association, the Welsh, Scottish and UK governments, and BRE. This intelligence will include up-to-date details of planning applications, project locations and stages in each merchants’ community, giving them a competitive edge with live sales leads to capitalise on.
“h&b is committed to supporting its member through the whole buying and selling process, to offer real added value services like the ABI Barbour partnership,” says h&b’s Jamie Wyatt. “This is just one part of the services and support packages that we have rolled out for members in what has been a tough year, including a new Buyers Guide, and a partnership agreement with the BMF, with more plans in the pipeline to help our merchant members to bounce back from the COVID crisis stronger than ever.”
