MKM Building Supplies opens in Telford

MKM Building Supplies has officially opened its new branch in Telford, creating 18 jobs. 

The store becomes the builders’ merchant’s first branch in Shropshire, staffed by a team of local people.

With building supplies, timber, plumbing, heating and more, the new branch aims to act as a “one stop shop” for both the general public as well as the trades. There are also state-of-the-art showrooms staffed by dedicated specialists, the firm said.

Hull-based MKM operate branches throughout England and Scotland. Last year, the company celebrated its 22nd anniversary along with a milestone 50th branch; MKM has since set the objective of breaching the 100 branch mark by 2022.  

The new Telford branch, located on Ketley Business Park off Waterloo Road, is headed up by a duo of branch directors, Paul Tarr and Mark Evans.

Paul Tarr, branch director, 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 the trades 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.”
