MKM has officially cut the ribbon on its new branch in Elgin - becoming the merchant’s northernmost branch.

The new branch created 12 jobs in the Scottish town, headed up by a duo of Branch Directors, Jon Sheard and Doug McNair. In addition to the new job roles is a new vehicle fleet that will be operating in Elgin and the surrounding area, clad in the yellow-and-blue MKM branding.

Jon Sheard, Branch Director at MKM Elgin, commented: “We’re thrilled to be opening to Elgin! We’ve taken our time to put together an unbeatable team here: full of experienced, skilled local people who fully understand the needs of those they’ll be serving - whether from trades or DIY.

“We can only encourage visitors to give us a try for their next project.”

McNair said: “We understand how competitive the merchant sector is - the consumer has a lot of choice - so, at MKM, we aim to set ourselves apart with a focus on customer service.

“This means going the extra mile to provide an unbeatable service, a fantastic product range and great prices.

“As the 59th national branch, the team are excited to get to work replicating the success MKM has seen elsewhere in the UK by providing a uniquely customer-focused merchant experience.”
