Started in 2010 by twin brothers, Craig and Ian Baldwin, with the vision of creating an online building supplies company that offered an extensive range of competitively priced, quality building products direct to trade professionals and the public.
The firm began as an online aggregates business and expanded its product range incrementally in response to customer requirements. A constant driver has been to provide the highest quality products, in a timely fashion with excellent customer service and technical support.
The product has grown extensively and now covers construction materials, roofing supplies, roof windows, doors, bathrooms, flooring, tiles, fencing and much more. Importantly, Building Supplies Online is able to offer an extensive variety of competitively priced building products, without compromising quality or performance. This is achieved through inventive and ethical sourcing and by working with a trusted supply chain, allowing the company to pass savings straight to customers.
Having built a robust and buoyant business, in 2017 the company entered into a strategic partnership with a specialist investor, Cairngorm Capital Partners. Benefiting from the industry know-how and global best practice that its partner is able to offer, Building Supplies Online has secured the specialist sector expertise and financial support to fuel its ambitious growth plans.
Investment in infrastructure, marketing and the expansion of its product range and distribution networks will accelerate the scale and range of the business for the benefit of customers and suppliers alike.
Banbury Rugby Club Sponsorship
We are keen to be involved in our local community. Rugby as a sport mirrors the way we aim to operate; teamwork and healthy competition are central components of our culture as a business.
Established in 1925, Banbury Rugby Club welcomes all ages to participate in a club that, since its opening, has grown to become an extremely successful and prominent force in Midlands rugby.
Charity and Volunteer Work
At Building Supplies Online we are committed to supporting charities close to our heart, both in our local community and abroad. Our office worked together to provide clothes, toys and more to the needy over the 2018 Christmas period.
In 2021 BSO made a donation of £250 towards our colleague Mandy Bristow's "500 miles in 100 days" challenge to raise money for Oxfordshire Mind to help with their work advocating for mental health. With the global pandemic putting pressure on our colleagues and families across the country, BSO recognise the importance of promoting awareness and encouraging understanding of mental health problems in our community.
