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

The biggest benefit to being a MBEX member is the convenience of being able to come to the same place every day rather than driving hundreds of miles every week to various general contractor offices to do the same time.  Being a member saves both time and money.

— Matt Packer, Prindle Painting

Membership to the electronic plan room saves us much time and expense as opposed to traveling to a stationary plan room or ordering paper plans.

— Mike Noonan, Cascade Manufacturing Co

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!

— Robert Nelson, Auld Communications

The MBEX plan room saves me from driving all over town to track down projects!

— Kat Traxler, Bartley Sales Co Inc
