What Our Members Are Saying

With MBEX, we can look up jobs to see if they fit with what we do and print out documents in house rather than going to the architect/engineer.

— Gail Schwarz, Central Roofing Company

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

It's important to recognize a transforming business opportunity when it happens; especially when it makes such a difference to a company's business performance and particularly its wellbeing and success. MBEX, supported by its enthusiastic and dynamic staff, is a standout example of just how business should work. Through the collective efforts of their staff; our company has exposure to countless opportunities, all of which are updated multiple times a day and immediately available for our review.

What the Exchange provides for an affordable yearly fee would be (near) impossible to secure or afford on our own. I strongly recommend the MBEX to any supplier or contractor eager to take their company to the next level of contract procurement. It's real-time, real simple, fast and easy to use. Thank you for the great service you provide us each and everyday.

— Tim Haubrich, Solid 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
