Where did come from? is a registered business of Mancer Corp Pty Ltd (ABN 90 000 949 084) and is the natural progression from it's earlier trading days, starting out over 38 years ago by a commercial builder, Fred Mancer (Senior) selling building materials as Buildex Trading Co. - with a single warehouse and store in Brookvale on Sydney's northern beaches.

There has been many advancements in the types of building products available in the last 20 years and it was quickly seen that there was a need for a service that provided detailed information on the new products available and in assisting in locating professionals to install these products - As such, the Northern Suburbs Building Information Centre was started in 1996 to cater to this, containing two floors of product displays and a brochure hall with over 2,000 different brochures for manufacturers.

The Northern Suburbs Building Information Centre differed from all other display centres as it was staffed by fully qualified, licensed builders that were on hand to offer not only free advice and information on all the products available, but also offered the sale of all items displayed at heavily discounted prices (by having all goods delivered direct to site with no intermediate handling involved).

By the year 1999, with the success of this format (and winning various awards), the floorspace was soon filled to capacity with more and more suppliers wanting to have their products included. Fred Mancer (Jnr.) solved this problem utilising the resources of the newly emerging technologies - the internet and SMS.

By offering the same services online for the sale of materials and using SMS broadcasting for the Trade Connect joblead service (see TRADE CONNECT in the top menu) the physical restrictions to the amount of products that could be displayed was removed as well as the geographic contraints of the customers and areas that were able to be serviced. now offers over 350 different companies products and assists customers from all over Australia with over 6,000 to 8,000 visitors through 'our doors' every day! evolved from the Northern Suburbs Building Information Centre, Sydney takes advantage of modern technologies to their full extent using an automated enquiry / ordering system to bring to you a service unlike any other, with low cost material supplies, extensive product information and easy connection with trades and professionals, all backed up with assistance on hand most hours of the day.

Anyone can buy from

There's no joining up or anything - you simply click on the items you're after and away you go. We act on our customer's behalf, not the manufacturer's - almost as your very own purchasing office, quite often getting three or four prices ourselves from the network of manufacturers we have to ensure we are getting the lowest prices for you.

Lowest pricing policy

By adding your purchases to the many others buying through our materials mall allows greater discounts to be achieved - we guarantee it!! The prices listed are discounted as much as possible based on the prices offered by the manufacturers to us - but that does't mean we can't get lower prices still.

If you do receive better pricing than what we offer, please, let us know. This type of feedback is required to ensure our pricing is always competitive.... and remember, the greater the volume of product we collectively buy from the suppliers the lower the pricing we can achieve, and thus pass on to you.
