Who We Are

South Tyne Building Supplies Ltd was established over 30 years ago by Toby and Carole Parker (in 1978 to be precise) and we have grown to become one of the leading builders merchants in the North East of England supplying builders, plumbers, and joiners as well as roofers and every other type of tradesman you can think of.


We don't just serve the trade of course - our expert staff are on hand to help members of the public as well with projects large and small. Unlike the "big brand" out of town D.I.Y stores, our staff are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their areas of expertise. The next time you need something for a project at home why not call in and experience the difference for yourself?


Despite our growth over the years we have remained a local, family owned and run, independent business which is proud to be based in South Tyneside and is looking forward to serving our clients for many more decades to come.
