Murdock Builders Merchants was originally established in 1982 with the set-up of Newry Building Supplies Ltd on the Rathfriland Road in Newry. After a brief period at this location Newry Building Supplies transferred to a bigger more central location on the Greenbank Industrial Estate in Newry where it remains today.

Murdock Builders Merchants growth over the last 35 years has been a combination of organic and by acquisition, and we are currently recognised as a leading supplier of building materials and timber in the Irish Market Place. We have 14 Builders Merchants branches plus two timber sites in Ireland, North and South, and a Civils Division in Belfast and Dublin.



Cranwood Industries, based in a purpose-built facility in Warrenpoint Co. Down, is one of our specialist timber sites and offers a full range of machined timber products, from standard skirting and architrave moulds to customized window boards, stair parts and door sets.
