MKM and Kingspan sign exclusive deal

Published:  21 April, 2016

MKM Building Supplies has signed a landmark deal with Kingspan Insulation as its exclusive supplier of Polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation. MKM is the first independent builders’ merchant to partner exclusively with Kingspan.

The deal will enable MKM Building Supplies to create bespoke solutions for building projects of all types and sizes. Stephen Bennett, senior product manager at MKM Building Supplies, said the agreement enabled the company to take its customer offer to the next level.

“Kingspan came to us with the full package,” he said. “They are a market leader with a premium brand and a premium product, but we have also negotiated a service package that really puts MKM customers at an advantage.

“We will stock a lot of the products in branch, but our arrangement with Kingspan means we have immediate access to a whole range of PIR products. Our ability to access these easily means we can get it to our customers efficiently and quickly.”
