A group of Canberra builders opened our warehouse in 1966, specialising in building and hardware products. Over the years the Co-op has progressed and grown significantly and employs over 15 people and is well established in the very competitive building, construction and hardware industry within the ACT region. Our basic philosophy has been and continues to be, to develop and foster reputable working relationships with our customers and suppliers along with keeping up-to-date with new and improved products and services. This has been attributable to the Co-op’s success and continual growth.
With our ongoing commitment to staff development, relationship and partnership building, whilst remaining at the forefront of innovations and building ideas, we are committed to continual improvement. These improvements are applied to our range of products and services which enables us to remain a leading edge within the building, construction and hardware industry
Our board of directors are builders and between them have many decades of building industry knowledge and experience. They listen to, and review many of the questions, recommendations and ideas received from the shareholders so they can look at ways to continually improve the products and services provided to all our stakeholders. They are always keen to hear any ideas or thoughts on ways to benefit and improve the Co-op.
Welcome to the Co-op
Builders Trading Cooperative Ltd is the largest building supply cooperative operating within the building and construction Industry in the ACT region.
We operate with people who share our commitment to strive and maintain the highest standard of quality products and services.
This commitment underpins everything we do, but to achieve this goal, this ultimately depends on the efforts of each and every employee at Builders Trading Cooperative Ltd (Co-op). This is why our employees are recognised and considered as vital assets to our business.
We aim to please and service is what we are about. We offer 4-hour delivery 5 days a week to the Canberra and Queanbeyan area (conditions apply).
Once you have tried us you will see why we are the best in the business for service among the building trade industry and that is one of the reasons why we are the largest independent building supply company in the ACT region.
Because we are a cooperative we can offer better service, prices and quality than our competitors can, as all profits go back to the members in the form of a dividend or rebate. This is a great reason to ask us about becoming a member!
Our fleet of vehicles is managed by us and along with our own employees gives us the flexibility to provide exceptional service compared to our main competitors using contractor drivers.
Our commitment to our employees is demonstrated in many ways such as through our continuously developing human resources framework, policies, training opportunities and career development.
