Zurich & Düsseldorf, May 2023
buildup - the Swiss competence center for product data in the construction industry and ProMaterial, the sales technology focused startup from Germany agree on a strategic cooperation. The main goal of the cooperation is the use of synergies and thereby the expansion of the service offering with the launch in the Swiss market.
buildup has built up a broad pool of high-quality product data in its product data library through many years of successful activity in the Swiss market. In recent months, the connection to various sales channels has been strongly concretized in order to open up further digital sales channels for the manufacturer partners in addition to the established partnership such as with Allplan, MuM (Revit), Vectorworks or Sorba, among others. In this context, talks with ProMaterial were intensified.
On the part of the startup ProMaterial, which is growing very fast in Germany, it was a welcome opportunity to continue the path already taken in Switzerland with a strong and established partner. For the customers of both companies, the closer cooperation offers additional access to high-quality data expertise and a high-value technology framework.
In a first step, the cooperation will be systematically launched in Switzerland in order to subsequently offer a broader range of joint services in Germany as well. In particular, ProMaterial's highly versatile e-sourcing and e-commerce solutions open up a new area for buildup in which the enriched product data can fully demonstrate its added value. In turn, it is a tremendous accelerator for ProMaterial in rolling out the technology and it allows them to fully focus on their core competencies.

ProMaterial is the new technology network specialized in e-sourcing and online distribution of building products. The innovative SaaS technology supports manufacturers and distributors to present and efficiently sell construction materials and products with excellent data quality via various channels on the Internet. ProMaterial itself is a technology supplier and not a market participant. All groups of buyers find information about the products in the required form, in industry software solutions, online marketplaces, BIM or calculation systems or more simply via web shop. Professional customers and end users can more conveniently order a wider range of products. Under the auspices of buildingSMART International (bSI), ProMaterial is working with the industry to develop a new manufacturer-neutral description format for the properties of construction products. UniversalTypes, supported by many other software partners, are introduced in 25 country organizations of bSI.
