About Us

The commendable work ethic and dedication to customer satisfaction of Mercury’s staff has always been stimulated by the “family business” feel that Mercury engenders among its employees. The brand encourages inclusion and ensures that all customers to the store are greeted and treated with smiles.

Nine prize-winning years later, Mercury joined the Build-It Group and began trading as Mercury Build-It. Back on the East Rand, in Brakpan, this is the latest incarnation in its already storied history.


Through it all, Mercury has maintained the personal, smiling service of the small, family-run business that it started its life as.

In Build-It, Mercury has found a partnership whose own focus on community upliftment reflects the small-town values that have carried the Mercury brand from family-run fast food store, to the forefront of building and DIY solutions provision in Southern Africa.
