Supporting Our Future Workforce

With the help of our donating partner, The Builders Group (TBG) Education Foundation, the MBEX Scholarship Fund awards scholarships annually to college and technical school students in construction-related fields.

MBEX + TBG pave the way for students

For over 15 years, our scholarships have provided students in the construction industry with awards funded directly by member company donations. Awards are based in part on merit, defined by the committee to include academic achievements as well as a range of other personal accomplishments and experiences.

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!


— Robert Nelson, Aulds Communications

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

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.
