N&C Building Materials

Our long established Builders Merchant Business

N&C Building Materials are a long established builder’s merchant servicing the South East of England.  Established in 1875, Nicholls & Clarke began life solely as Builders Merchants servicing the Capitals building trades.

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Nicholls & Clarke very quickly expanded their operations as major suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers with a comprehensive range of over 60,000 building products to offer trade professionals including building materials, sanitaryware, doors and joinery, ironmongery, landscaping materials, bricks and blocks, timber, ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, natural stone, adhesives, tiling systems, decorating products, electric and hand tools and an extensive independent living solutions portfolio. 

We stock a huge range of popular, great quality trade branded products at trade prices with regular price checks conducted to keep prices low. We have over £10,000,000m worth of products in stock, with the ability to quickly source items that are not available off the shelf. Furthermore, all credit account and cash account card holders receive free, nationwide, next day* delivery on one of our private fleet of 110 commercial vehicles. 

As a long established company, with technical expertise and unrivalled experience, we understand our trade market and develop complete end to end packages, unrivalled delivery service and an invaluable technical advice service. 

We have a wealth of experience and expertise within the organisation with a long established relationship with our suppliers that allow us to be the first on many occasions to introduce innovations and high performance products to the market to overcome day to day issues in the building trade.
