Ashford welcomes MKM Building Supplies

Our latest MKM branch to open is MKM Ashford, ran by father and son duo John and Tom Rose.

MKM Ashford is pleased to announce that they will be supporting local charity, Pilgrims Hospice and have set a goal to raise £2,000 for the much-loved organisation in the first few weeks of opening.

John and Tom will be joined at MKM Ashford by a team of 15. Every member has been brought on board for their experience and reliability, and together they will be offering the people of Ashford a one-stop-shop alternative to the traditional builder’s merchant. With a whopping 300 years combined experience in the merchant sector, the branch intends to put customer service first and will go above and beyond to ensure that their customer service is second to none.

John Rose, Branch Director at MKM Ashford, said: “I was delighted when Tom suggested we go into business together, and run our own merchants. I have 40 years-experience in the construction industry, and I’m chomping at the bit to deliver the service I know the area deserves.

“This is a family run business, we value that, and we intend for the values that go with that to shine through in how we operate. MKM Ashford stands for outstanding customer service, and a personal touch. We want our customers to get to know us at the branch, and we want to get to know them, so that we can work to get them exactly what they need.

“MKM is a one-stop-shop, we stock all building products, including building materials, plumbing and heating, landscaping, electrical, drainage and civils, insulation and plaster board, workwear and timber, joinery and sheet materials. We don’t just cater to trade, everyone is welcome and we are more than happy to show general public visitors around our kitchen and bathroom showrooms or provide everything they need for a DIY project or renovation.”

Kate Tinsley, CEO of MKM Building Supplies Limited Added: “I have every faith in the Ashford team, and I wish them every success. Their commitment to the local area and to first rate customer service is exactly what MKM is all about.

“As a company we value the communities around our branches and strive to give them the top-of-the-line facilities and services they deserve. The Ashford team are committed to this, and have the experience, drive, and passion for giving the area a premier destination that will provide a new experience for the people of Ashford.”

MKM Ashford is based at 2 Hilton Road, Ashford, TN23 1EW.
