The Builders Merchant Industry
The Builders Merchant industry is made up of builders merchants, plumbers merchants, timber merchants and other specialist merchants, who supply products and materials to construction companies, tradespeople and the general public. They make up and deliver orders and advise customers on which products to use for a particular job/s. The merchants are in turn supplied by merchant suppliers who manufacture/refine the raw materials/products that are sold by the merchants. If you want a practical job, working with customers that combines indoor and outdoor work, this could be the industry for you.
