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

MBEX has given us another tool to market our company, to chase jobs, to track jobs, to network-- to basically put our company out there to expand our growth in the industry.


— Kyle Larson, Golden Valley Supply Co

Having services frees us up to do other things like manage our business and bid more work. At the end of the day, it's all about money going out and money coming in and the builders exchange helps us save money. 


— Heather Grazzini-Sims, Carciofini Company

It's giving us access to a variety of ways to get our name out there whether it be through advertising, face to face events or other programs they have developed. 


— Joel Almquist, Scaffold Service

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, Aulds Communications
