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 drawing takeoff service, brick matching and free local delivery.

MKM Scunthorpe is headed-up by two branch directors, Karl Wilmore and Kevin Danks, both from Scunthorpe and delighted to be opening doors for business.

Kevin has worked in merchanting for over 20 years with experience across all aspects of the trade, he commented:

“The whole team is really excited about the new branch and I’m pleased to say that despite the challenges to businesses this year, we have been able to launch without a hitch. Our ambition for the branch is to be the biggest, best and first choice builders merchants for the trade and retail in Scunthorpe and the surrounding area.”

“Our goal initially is to raise the profile of the MKM brand within the area. We offer exceptional customer service and our team is looking forward to welcoming customers and supporting their projects and installations.

Our staff and customer’s safety has been paramount in planning for our opening and I have been really impressed by how the whole team has pulled together to make the branch Covid secure and prepare for the launch.”
