The UK’s largest independent builder’s merchant, MKM Building Supplies, opened its 127th branch in Cardiff last month on Colchester Avenue, Cardiff and aims to create 20 new jobs for the area.

The new store will be run by Branch Directors Dan Love and Russ Lewis who have extensive experience in the merchandising industry and are both South Wales residents. Speaking about the opening, Mr Lewis said, “I’ve lived in Cardiff for 48 years and started working on the trade counter of a local merchant at 16 years old. To be leading the first MKM in South Wales, building a best-in-class merchant for trade and retail customers in the community I love is a dream come true.” 

Branch Director, Dan Love added: “We are local people working with local customers and trades and we’re here to build relationships together. We want to make everyone feel welcome and provide a service that goes above and beyond.”

MKM Cardiff will supply local tradespeople and the public with diverse stock and products from industry-leading brands such as Siniat, Kronospan, Ox and Super Glass.

Both Branch Directors hope the store will be a central part of the community, opening the doors for everyone from housing developers to weekend DIYers.
