As 2020 starts to draw to a close, we’ve got one more branch to welcome to the MKM network. Introducing our latest branch – MKM Corby, which opened it’s doors today (Monday 7th December), creating 15 much needed jobs in the area.
The 15,000 sq. ft. new branch, our 75th, is based at Centrix Business Park, Furnace Way, Corby and is designed to be a one-stop shop for both local building trade and retail customers, offering a wealth of industry expertise and an extensive range of products and services.
MKM Corby will showcase a wide range of building essentials including, plumbing and heating, electrical, drainage, roofing, timber, plaster and plasterboard, doors, ironmongery and joinery.
The branch will also feature a stunning kitchen and bathroom showroom and landscaping display, offering free designs and consultations to help customers get their projects off to a great start. The branch also offers a building takeoff service, brick matching and free local delivery.
MKM Corby is headed-up by two branch directors, Mick Mattison and Simon Loveridge both delighted to be opening doors for business, after only one week delay due to lockdown from their original plans.
Mick who has been in the industry for 30 years, and been awarded as Branch Manager of the Year commented:
“It our ambition to make MKM Corby the number one merchant of choice in the surrounding area for both trade and public. In my experience a successful formula to creating a thriving building merchant is when expertise, knowledge and customer service is ingrained in the culture, and at MKM it certainly is.
We are looking forward to helping our customers create their dream homes, and as a local team we are also committed to supporting our community and will be working closely with charities to do our bit.”
Co-director, Simon Loveridge who brings 38 years expertise to the role commented:
“For too long there has been a perception the builders merchants are not generally a place for the public, however it is our mission to change that – our new branch is purpose built and easy to navigate, our team is highly experienced and customer service is of paramount importance to us all.
We look forward to welcoming and supporting both retail and trade customers and supporting them with their projects and installations.”
David Kilburn, Founder of MKM Building Supplies Limited commented:
“Our new branch in Corby offers an exciting opportunity for MKM. The building industry in the area has always been buoyant and our new team is very experienced, knows the local market and has an in-depth understanding of what trade customers need and will provide a customer service that is second to none.
I would like to thank the whole team in MKM Corby for their hard work and boundless enthusiasm in opening the branch. It is a fantastic achievement for the brand.”
