Builders’ merchant welcomes sales growth recognition

MKM Building Supplies has been placed at number 38 in The Sunday Times Top Track 250 League Table, which ranks Britain’s top-performing, private mid-market growth companies by sales.

MKM has opened 13 new branches in the last year, which will bring the total number of outlets to 68 by the end of the year. New branches have opened in Burnley, Kilmarnock, Milton Keynes, Elgin, Mansfield, Burton, Middlesbrough, Yeovil, Weymouth, Leeds, Stoke, Aberdeen and Oban.

The independent builders’ merchant said it has¬†experienced growth in trade sales this year, but also a ‘significant increase’ in consumer retail sales with more branches featuring kitchen and bathroom showrooms.

Executive chairman David Kilburn said, “We are delighted with this recognition and attribute the success to our branch directors. MKM is fast becoming a nationally recognised brand, however we strive to retain a strong community focus in each branch, where our teams have built great relationships with local business.¬†Our branch directors all have a stake in the business and an opportunity to share in profits, which has helped attract a great team of local entrepreneurs and is proving to be key driver of our growth.”
