Hull builders’ merchants MKM Building Supplies has continued its fast growth with the opening of its 53rd branch in the UK.
The recognisable Hull firm, started by current executive chairman David Kilburn in 1995, has opened its most recent branch in the city of Telford, becoming the builders’ merchants first site in Shropshire, bringing 18 jobs to the town.
The firm’s wide product portfolio will be available at the new branch, staffed by a team of skilled local people.
MKM operates branches throughout England and Scotland and, last year, the company celebrated its 22nd anniversary along with a milestone 50th branch.
The firm has since set an objective to open more than 100 branches by 2022.
The merchant has recently been undergoing a strategic growth initiative, handpicking new locations throughout the country.
The new Telford branch is headed up by Paul Tarr and Mark Evans.
Mr Tarr said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be opening our new branch in Telford. Despite now being 53 strong throughout the country, this is MKM’s first in the wider area. We’ve handpicked a fantastic, skilled team of local people - everyone’s raring to show trade and public what MKM is all about. We can’t wait to start welcoming customers in-branch for a coffee and a chat about their next project.”
