bbi began by supplying plywood to the packaging industry but quickly realised there was an opportunity to expand the range. bbi now supplies product for a range of civil and commercial projects, from ply for acoustic dampening on a major roading development to appearance grade product to meet architects’ specifications for interior finishing. We distribute nationwide through building supply stores for the building industry, and we supply large industrial users such as the packaging industry directly.

In order to manage the considerable growth we’ve experienced over the last few years, we’ve employed the best people from within the building supplies industry, on both the retail and wholesale side, and now have over 100 years of combined experience within our team.
