Home Improvement & Building Product Manufacturers

Since 1991 our team has partnered with manufacturers within this segment to assist them with their Research, Sales and Marketing needs – from family owned and managed to large multinationals with turnovers between £5m and £100m+.

Focusing on the building and construction industry, sectors where we have substantial research experience include; windows, doors & conservatories, roofing, cladding & insulation, landscaping & gardening, bathrooms & kitchens, building products & materials, and building products distribution research.

Buying Groups, Trade Associations & Membership Organisations

We have a long history of working in partnership with and for government funded construction-related associations, including Buying Groups, Federations, Trade Associations & Membership Organisations. 

MRA has been a member of the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) for over 15 years, and since 2015, we have been managing the award winning monthly Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI) report, which is the only reliable measure of repair, maintenance & improvement (RMI) activity in the UK.

Builders' Merchants & Other Distributors

Our experience of working with merchants is unrivalled. In a demonstration of our commitment and knowledge of the sector, MRA created the BMBI in 2015, in partnership with the BMF and GfK. Filling an important gap in the market the report uses sales-out data from GfK’s General Builders’ Merchants Panel and includes a panel of leading industry experts who speak for and explain their markets.

We also have a detailed understanding of numerous channels of distribution, including DIY retailers, merchants, wholesalers, bathroom & kitchen distributors and other specialists.

At MRA Research we do things differently. We are experts at market tracking and insight, and have over 25 years’ experience of market and customer research within the building industry.
