It All Started In 1983…

Maroubra Building Supplies opened its doors in 1983 on Anzac Parade, Maroubra. Owned by Sam Papadakis and family it was established to cater for the local communities hardware and building supplies needs. It soon became an Eastern Suburbs institution which was trusted and frequented by families and tradies who appreciated old fashion service and value for money. This was the humble beginning that captivated the local community and crafted the business ethos MBS would become renowned for in the years to come.

Managing Director Louie Papadakis

It was the year 1995...

Current Managing Director, Louie Papakadis began working on weekends and during the school holidays where he would sell nails by weight, bag sand by hand and develop the knowledge that later would inspire him to take the reigns of MBS. Louie’s vision was not only to grow but to become an industry leader, offering a broader range of materials and an uncompromising level of customer service unlike anything that was available in the era.

The year 2008 when it all changed…

Maroubra Building Supplies was rebranded to MBS Sand and Cement. The rebranding was done to reflect the expansion of materials and the ability to deliver Sydney wide with a modern fleet of vehicles capable of offering greater on site logistics and transport solutions. Although MBS has continued to expand its footprint, its vision has not changed and continues to pay homage to its founding roots; providing the highest level of customer service, quality products and value for money. These continue to be the pillars underlying MBS’s vision in becoming an industry leader.

Today MBS stocks an array of well known brands and has expanded into supplying a large variety of building and landscape supplies for everyone including builders, tradies, home renovators and local families. Our ability to deliver quality materials and products on time with industry leading site logistics and transport solutions is unrivalled and paramount to our continued growth. With the recent launch of our Club 83 Program, we are committed to continuing to support our loyal customer base whilst always supporting our local community through a variety of affiliations with organisations and charities.
