MKM lays foundations in the South West

Published:  24 August, 2016

MKM Building Supplies has arrived in the South West, creating 14 jobs with the opening of its 44th branch, located in Honiton.

The new site is part of an ongoing growth plan and marks a move into new territory for the Hull-based business. The Honiton branch will contain MKM's usual array of plumbing, heating, roofing and building supplies, as well as an excellent treated timber offering.

MKM Honiton intends to replicate the success of branches elsewhere in the UK with a product portfolio designed to cater for both the public as well as trade. The stunning kitchen and bathroom showrooms - proving a huge success across the country - will be a key feature, with free design services on offer from industry specialists.

The first two weeks of trading will be accompanied by a series of deals, savings and competitions for customers. There are a variety of prizes and rewards, including an opportunity to win an iPad for those who spend over £250 and credit rewards with selected purchases.

Clive Carvell, branch director at the Heath Trade Park site, said: "The team is really excited to bring the MKM offering to both the public and local trades in Honiton.

"MKM has built up an incredible reputation nationally for excellent product quality and customer service. It is wonderful to be at the forefront of MKM's move into the South West."
