Established in 1992 as Independent Manufacturers Alliance Ltd. (IMA), the group now trades as Combined Buying Services (CBS)

Original focus aimed to assist small/medium-sized manufacturing companies reduce costs for a range of goods & services, for example.

  • Telecommunications
  • Ingredients
  • Packaging
  • Vehicle Fuel
  • Workwear

As the uk's manufacturing base has changed over the years. So CBS realised that opportunities for cost reduction in areas of non-core, but common expenditure could be offered to any type of business.

Clients now include groups of businesses, where group supplies core products and services to its members, but rely on CBS to deliver cost reduction in non-core areas of expenditure.
