What Our Members Are Saying

MBEX helps us to build relationships with others in the industry... which is great networking opportunity between subcontractors, generals and suppliers.

— Danielle Dziedzic, Dziedzic Caulking Inc

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

It's giving us access to a variety of ways to get our name out there whether it be through advertising, face to face events or other programs they have developed.
