MKM Building Supplies, the UK’s largest independent builder’s merchant, has opened a new, specialist branch in Scarborugh.
The branch will be a one-stop shop for plumbing and heating engineers and will stock a wide variety of essentials including pipework, radiators and fittings as well as water treatment and chemicals. Also on tap will be expertise and advise on new heating technologies, from MKM’s team of highly skilled staff.
In addition, it will feature a range of kitchen and bathroom designs in a stunning showroom, and will offer free measuring and 3D design services.
The branch will also showcase a fantastic landscaping display and will offer building, timber and sheet materials on a collect basis.
The new branch will be located at Columbus Ravine, will welcome both trade and retails customers and offer a complimentary range of services and products to MKM Scarborough on Seamer Road.
The two MKM branches will work closely together to enhance the customer experience in the area, with several staff from Seamer Road moving into the new branch this week bringing a wealth of experience.
Columbus Ravine branch director Joe Hakings, who formerly worked at MKM at Seamer Road, said: “This is a really exciting new venture. I’m delighted to be joining the new team who has worked incredibly hard to create an exceptional customer experience.
“As a team we are committed to growing MKM’s presence within the local area and continue to provide great customer service and product expertise to customers in Scarborough.
“MKM already has a great network locally and we look forward building upon this and to supporting our local plumbers, joiners, kitchen and bathroom fitters with their installations.”
David Kilburn, the Founder of MKM Building Supplies Limited, said: “This is an exciting new approach for MKM, we already have a fantastic presence in the area and we are hoping to build upon this to enhance the range of services and products that we offer in Scarborough.
“The building industry Scarborough is buoyant and offers MKM a superb commercial opportunity to continue to build our presence and drive market share.”
