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.


The MBEX Scholarship Committee will meet soon to begin planning for the 2017-2018 Scholarship Program.

What Our Members Are Saying

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

MBEX is one of the most used project lead sites by Pella locally. It is easy to navigate and access plans/specs. Thank you! Without MBEX we would not have as many opportunities.

— Toni Carlson, Pella Windows & Doors Inc- Twin Cities

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

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, Hinrichs Estimating
