Helping Educate Our Future Workforce

To encourage continued industry growth, the Minnesota Builders Exchange Scholarship Fund awards scholarships annually to college and technical school students in construction related fields

In 2014, with the help of a new donating partner, The Builders Group (TBG), the MBEX Scholarship Fund was able to reach further in helping show the importance of educating our future workforce.

What Our Members Are Saying

We have used MBEX for a number of years. We have found that MBEX has the best coverage for the state of MN and their actives reach well into other states. Statistically, MBEX accounts for 81% of business leads while the other exchanges added a different set of projects that added up to 19%.  We have a mutually beneficial relationship with MBEX and applaud the work that they do.

— Greg Korpi, Distributor Sales

After comparison, metrics and discussion, it was shown that the MBEX provides a superior level of information, detail and download speed for projects in the area.  Thanks again for providing a great service!  It's great to be a member.

— Peter Dzubay, Viega LLC

I have used the MBEX online service for quite some time and find it to be an invaluable asset.  Plans and specifications are promptly downloaded and easily accessible.

— George Podrug, Superior Crane Corp

Since becoming a member of MBEX, we have secured over $400,000 in new work in one year's time.  We have also built new long-term relationships that have lead to private projects and created higher visibility in our marketplace.  Thank you MBEX!
