ProMaterial - the fastest growing building products database in the DACH region

Now it's official: Our growth averages over 50% annually!

That means in numbers:

  • Over 6.5 million article data and media
  • Over 550 supplier catalogs available 
  • Over 64 million product properties (UniversalTypes)

UniversalTypes are the new and uniform language for the construction industry. The properties of building products are thus described in a manufacturer-neutral way - coded, format-independent and open.

Nine letters, numbers and characters make the digital purchase and distribution of building products possible for manufacturers, distributors and construction companies.

As a backend technology provider, ProMaterial offers a uniform API for the purchase and sale of building products. All software manufacturers from the construction industry can use the open API and thus make work easier for construction companies. Manufacturers and resellers can distribute their products digitized more easily without media discontinuity. 

Data and digitization are crucial tools for combating the climate crisis. We are therefore continuing to expand UniversalTypes together with manufacturers, partners and associations in order to map further sustainability and emissions attributes in the UniversalTypes database.

About ProMaterial:
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.
