Marteu Helps Builders Buy Construction Materials at Factory Prices

Builders can buy materials like porcelain tiles and LVP directly from manufacturers overseas

Delaware, United States, 6th Jun 2024, King NewsWire – Marteu has launched an online marketplace to help builders find the construction materials they need for their projects at factory prices. By saving these builders thousands of dollars off the typical retail prices in the States, Marteu offers a supportive system for both builders and sellers of these products. In addition to offering escrow payments and quality control to reduce risk, Marteu is developing solutions to help builders enjoy the same low prices even with small orders.

The construction industry in the United States is a challenging environment for builders, who often have to pay hefty prices for the materials they need. To put this into context, sourcing a 24×24” Porcelain Tile from the traditional supply chain costs anywhere from $2.00 to $10 per square foot, if not more. This cost is exclusive of shipping. In contrast, Marteu sells the same 24×24” Porcelain Tile at less than $1.00 per square foot, and this includes the shipping. 

The Gattinoni family has demonstrated a continued passion for the ceramics industry for decades. In fact, the idea for Marteu was born back when Aaron Gattinoni used to visit factories around the globe with his father. 

“I was always shocked when I went with my father to the factories and saw how low the factory prices were compared to the much higher retail prices in the States,” says Aaron. “In the traditional middleman-based system, agents, importers, distributors, and retailers each take a hefty profit margin when bringing these products to market. I set out to build a holistic alternative to the traditional middleman-based system, and Marteu was born.”

Aaron leveraged 4 years’ worth of experience working with SaaS startups to build a platform that brought manufacturer prices closer to the construction market and everyday builders. During his time at Market 8 – a firm offering services to help SaaS startups market their products, research their ICP, refine their USPs, and scale – Aaron refined his idea. As he gained more and more expertise, he knew it was possible to simplify the sourcing process for builders and help them build profitable projects.

Marteu is centered around replacing middleman services with code-based functionality that connects buyers with a marketplace of vetted factories. Thanks to Marteu, builders have access to some of the best factories that the largest domestic brands buy from. Beyond that, Marteu users can enjoy high-quality products at 2 or 3 times lower than what they would pay through the traditional supply chain. 

Aaron Gattinoni and his team pride themselves on giving builders total peace of mind. This is the only platform that offers protection through an escrow-based payment system, manages the import process, coordinates all logistics, and provides third-party inspections. Marteu does all this without marking up the manufacturers’ prices.

Aaron Gattinoni and his team are constantly looking for ways to offer both buyers and sellers more value and support through the platform. At the moment, their focus is on developing systems that allow builders to enjoy the same low prices even for small orders. These systems include stockholding agreements, buyer-buyer transactions, and group ordering.

Builders who place their orders through Marteu rather than relying on the traditional supply chain can easily save 50% or more. Marteu is streamlining the sourcing process in the construction industry. Marteu goes beyond making it more affordable to source materials like porcelain tiles. With its streamlined system – Marteu also drastically reduces the risk and workload for builders by managing the import and logistics process on their behalf while implementing 3rd party quality checks and an escrow-based payment system.
