New MKM branch creates 16 jobs in Blackpool

The doors are open at MKM Building Supplies’ new branch in Blackpool.

The new move brings 16 jobs to the seaside town and is the builders’ merchant’s 55th branch nationally.

MKM Blackpool aims to be a one-stop shop for the customers, with a product portfolio spanning building supplies, heating, landscaping, timber, and more. As well as take-off, brick matching and other services, the new branch boasts state-of-the-art kitchen and bathroom showrooms. Staffed by dedicated specialists, a range of designs are showcased to offer insight and inspiration to suit any budget.

The UK’s largest independent builders’ merchant, Hull-based MKM has grown steadily since it was founded in 1995; a milestone 50th branch opened last year, with plans for over 100 branches by 2022.

MKM Blackpool’s team of specialists will be headed up by a duo of Branch Directors, Darren Whiteside and Joe Keane. In a crowded merchant sector, MKM’s distinguishing focus is on customer service; Darren said: “The hand-picked team we’ve put together in Blackpool is excited to get started. We want to show what the MKM brand means: great service, fantastic prices and a huge product range.”
