MKM Building Supplies has continued its national expansion, opening a branch in the Cheshire town of Warrington.

Hull-based MKM has been embarking on a strategic growth initiative, selecting locations throughout the country to launch new branches. The newest branch is the company’s 49th nationally and fifth in the north-west, with the merchant having plans to open more branches in 2017.

Ian Greenhough, one of two Branch Directors at the Winwick Road location, said: “Anyone popping into this new branch is going to be served by a carefully-selected team of local people and specialists.

“MKM has gained a national reputation for excellent customer service, great prices and expansive product range - and that’s exactly what we hope to be bringing to the trade and the general public in and around Warrington.”
