New Business to Business Supply Model Helping to Aid The Construction Industry

Share Article

A tough construction market has led Bid For Materials to come up with new supply marketing strategies that benefit contractors, suppliers, and homeowners alike.

Frederick Cann Jr. has been in the construction industry for over 20 years, in both the commercial and residential fields, and for all of that time, his passion has been getting the best price possible for his materials. "That's why my company is always busy, even in a down market," says Cann. "Since the onset of the most recent recession, I've been even more motivated."

This motivation to save money has been the driving force behind Cann's most recent business venture, Along with partners Tom Costarelli and Allen Weinstein, Cann created Bid For Materials as a way to connect suppliers and contractors online, saving them time, and money. The website allows construction professionals to create profiles and gain access to a nationwide database of suppliers and contractors. Contractors have the opportunity to post lists of the supplies they need, and suppliers are able to send them private offers for what they are able to provide.

Based out of their Medford, Long Island headquarters, Cann, Costarelli, and Weinstein hope to help suppliers find more outlets for their materials, contractors get better prices on those materials, and homeowners get the most for their home improvement dollar.

"Contractors get endless possibilities for better prices on materials, which would result in better bids to customers, generating more work for their company. Suppliers get unlimited leads, which improves their sales as well. It's a no brainer," says Cann.
