Our Kirkcaldy branch are approaching their tenth year in business this September! After opening their doors on the 1st week of September in 2005 with only 5 members of staff, the branch have undergone many changes since then.
The Kirkcaldy branch on Smeaton Road now employs a team of 19 local trade experts to cater for their growing customer base. Starting with just 1 delivery vehicle and a pick-up, the branch now use 3 vehicles, 1 pick-up and 1 curtain sided delivery lorry to ensure they can offer free delivery on all of their orders.
It’s not just the team and vehicle fleet that have expanded, the branch have introduced numerous new products to their wide range. They now offer kitchens and bathrooms to both the trade and retail customer. After a branch revamp 2 years ago MKM Kirkcaldy introduced a 2nd mezzanine floor, adding pigeon hole timber racking.
The branch have 2 husband and wife teams, along with 3 employees that started through an apprenticeship scheme, with one current apprentice learning the ropes as they move into their tenth year.
Ian Watson, Co-Branch Director emphasises that it is the customers at MKM Kirkcaldy that make a difference,
“We have a really loyal customer base, we try our hardest to provide the best customer service in the area to ensure that MKM is the first choice for building supplies in Kirkcaldy.
