Who we are + What we do

The Minnesota Builders Exchange (MBEX) is a progressive, non-profit trade association providing our members with construction project leads, bidding documents and opportunities to network within the construction industry.

For over 130 years, our builders exchange has existed for the sole purpose of assisting our member companies and their employees- serving as both a physical and virtual builders exchange.

What Our Members Are Saying

I love how everyone at MBEX is both personable on the phone and in person at the exchange. The service is impeccable and the knowledge of the staff and how everything is run is wonderful. 


— Malia Oesterreich, R M S Rentals

Part of being in business and developing a relationship is getting to know people outside of work... There are so many of our customers that also use this resource, so it's a good chance to be able to connect with them. 


— Joel Almquist, Scaffold Service

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

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.
