ABOUT BYRON BAY BUILDING MATERIALSBBBM commenced trading in 1987.
The initial set up was at 13-15 Banksia Drive, Byron Bay and was known as Byron Bay Building Materials and Joinery.
It was purchased by Mike and Gayle Aherne from Jack Porter who ran a building materials and joinery shop.
When purchased, Mike continued with the joinery as well as building up sales in building materials.
More and more stock was purchased and gradually the business evolved from joinery to selling building materials.
In 1995 the business was moved to the current site at 1 and 3 Grevillea Street.
In 2005 additional land at 5 Grevillea Street was added to the site.
BBBM employ full-time, part-time and casual staff.
