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

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!

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.

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.
