What Our Members Are Saying

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.

I live and die by MBEX.

— Michael Lindholm, T M I Systems Corporation

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

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
