Construction Industry Streamlining Cash Flow with American Express Products


Growing demand for the construction industry indicates that building firm owners typically have to pay money for raw materials even as the cost of these components rises, leaving them to catch up on payments due to previous clients.  

American Express understands and responds to the unique needs of the construction industry with its small and mid-sized business products and services. 

From cash flow considerations to increasing equipment demands American Express offers solutions and a range of card products tailored to fulfill businesses’ B2B spending needs. These products help to facilitate money flow management through automation, payment options over time, and other features. 

Additionally, American Express promises to provide a plethora of cutting-edge tools to support businesses in growing their customer base. 

Let’s Find Out 

The Need 

According to a recent American Express survey, 67% of American firms anticipate spending more on construction over the next six months, and 72% anticipate spending more on raw and processed materials (such as chemicals, metal, and lumber). 

According to R.J. Ancona, VP of B2B at American Express the Global Business Spend Indicator survey indicates that U.S. businesses are spending more on construction. This is probably due to a number of factors, including the current inflationary environment, supply chain issues, and – on the plus side – the ability to resume projects paused during the pandemic. Businesses are spending more on raw materials in line with anticipated increases in construction investment. 

Construction firm managers should make sure they have adequate financial solutions in their armory to address this expanding demand now, as spending on construction is projected to continue strong.
