For over two decades, Natbuild has solidified its position as a premier consortium within the national building supplies sector. Our partnership with Frameworks, extending beyond 22 years, underscores our commitment to fostering a robust infrastructure for independent building supplies operations across Australia.

Unmatched Support for Independent Building Supplies Operations

Operating at 91 Natbuild locations nationwide, Frameworks processes an impressive volume of over 3.1 million transactions annually. This achievement is a testament to our members’ trust in us, positioning Natbuild as a leader among national builders groups and independent building supplies providers.

Our collaboration has been instrumental in refining Frameworks into a tool that is not just about functionality but about providing a competitive edge to our members. The key benefits for Natbuild members include:

  • Full and seamless multi-branch operation, ensuring efficiency across all national building supply locations.
  • Advanced timber and pack handling capabilities, catering to the specific needs of builders hardware direct.
  • Dedicated support for Frame & Truss manufacturing, reflecting our understanding of the industry’s nuances.
  • Extensibility through an open application interface, allowing for future growth and integration with software supply groups.
