Singapore Building Materials Suppliers' Association

Singapore Building Materials Suppliers' Association

Unite the Same Trade,
Advance with The Times,
Care for The Society,
Face The World

The Singapore Building Materials Suppliers’ Association was founded in 1929 by several senior members of the association to connect with one another and exchange business information. As most of the building materials operated by its members at that time were timber, it was originally named “Timber Suppliers’ Association”.

Due to the development of The Times, the different kinds of building materials were changing and diversifying with each passing day, so the materials of our trade were no longer limited to wood, but expanded to iron bars, cement, grindstone tiles, bathroom equipment, acoustic panels, etc. In 1965, the Association changed its name from “Fang Suppliers’ Association” to “Singapore Building Materials Suppliers’ Association” to catch the new trend and expand the scope of membership.

Strengthening International Business Ties

The Association is committed to assisting members to develop diversified businesses regionally and internationally, strengthening business relationships with domestic and foreign affiliated business groups.

Caring for Community Welfare

Over the years, we have actively participated in community public welfare and charity undertakings, carried forward the fine traditions of the Chinese people, and stayed on the frontlines to help the victims.

Improving with The Times

With the rapid movement of The Times, our association inherits the solid foundation of its predecessors, uniting its members, strengthening the co-operation and contact with related affiliations, marching forward towards the goal of transforming into a society.
