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.

How MBEX can serve you

Our staff of reporters research and provide bidding information including project leads and subcontractor bids on over 5,000 projects in the five-state area annually.

MBEX also provides systems of advertising, social networking opportunities, group programs and construction industry-related news—all of which have assisted thousands of companies for over 130 years.


What Our Members Are Saying

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

We've been a member of the builders exchange ever since we've been in existence. We support MBEX because its values are very similar to the ones that we find important: integrity to its members, support of the community and having fun at work.


— Russ Reger, Dem-Con Companies LLC

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

The biggest benefit of partnering with MBEX has been the opportunity to meet a lot of new people. Some of it creates more work, some of it doesn't, but the relationships are long-lasting.
