Online builders merchant launches new mobile website

Distributor Ltd own and operate the website (http://www.buildingmaterials.co.uk) and is based in Maidenhead. The site offers a wide range of construction products including building materials, timber, ceiling systems, partitioning, and insulation.

The website was set up in 2003 and the business has grown quickly and built relationships with some of the biggest manufacturers in the construction industry. It supplies a wide range of customers from trade and commercial users to homebuilders and DIY enthusiasts.

Phil Lidgerton, managing director of Distributor, said: “Within hours of the mobile website being launched we were excited to receive our first order. We know our market and what our customers need and the new mobile friendly site will enable our customers to order with a few simple clicks whist in the office or on-site.

“Our industry is very competitive, but our relationship with core manufacturers and flexibility as an independent enable us to keep our prices low and offer many products with next day delivery.”

Distributor plans to expand the business in 2014 with new products to be added to the site in the coming months. The company is also expecting a significant increase in demand as the construction industry looks set for resurgence over the next 12 months.
