Go-Banana.com announced that it has secured funding from the Development Bank of Wales and BSKG Holdings. Go Banana is an online platform where tradespeople can buy building supplies from hundreds of trusted merchants. The rapidly growing tech business lists over 100,000 products on its platform and serves over 15,000 customers.
“Go-banana.com is a dynamic e-Commerce marketplace start-up looking to revolutionize the way building supplies are bought and sold in the UK,” said Phoebe Bull, Co-founder, and COO for Go Banana. “We serve homeowners, DIY, and commercial builders, helping them purchase a wide range of high-quality products for their projects via a convenient one-stop solution and enabling independent and local sellers to sell their products nationwide. We aim to reduce costs, improve choice, save time and increase the happiness of everyone who is involved in home improvement and other building projects across the Nation.”
“Our aim is to not only offer a one-stop shop for trade professionals, but to also support local independent merchants by offering an online selling solution that is needed now more than ever. We have a wide range of specialist suppliers that have seen huge success from listing their products on our platform, who have benefited from the additional online exposure and Go Banana’s rapidly growing customer base.”
Founded in 2016 by the late Rami Naori, Go Banana is the UK’s first marketplace for building supplies. It offers a single destination for serious DIYers and an online solution for sourcing and selling building materials. This new concept brings all materials needed to complete projects into one place, reducing the time and costs associated with sourcing materials. The market enables users to compare prices between a variety of merchants instead of spending time calling and e-mailing for the best quotes.
The software developed by Go Banana imports and updates thousands of building products, simultaneously saving users up to 35% with every purchase. Users can search, compare and buy across a whole range of building and DIY supplies, including building and hardware; tiling and flooring; plumbing and heating; painting and decorating, and kitchens and bathrooms. All products available for purchase on Go Banana are sold by trusted merchants.
