The acquisition further builds out BME Group’s tiles competencies in Germany, where the company is one of the leading Sanitary, Heating and Plumbing (SHAP) distributors.

BME is one of Europe’s leading building material distribution companies and active in Germany under the brands Bauking and Mahler (distributors of general building materials) as well as Paulsen Gruppe, Detering, Bergmann & Franz (distributors of Sanitary, Heating & Plumbing materials).
