MKM Building Supplies launch of a kitchen and bathroom showroom in Ripon.
The Hull company, the UK’s largest independent builders’ merchant, has invested more than £30,000 to create an inspirational showroom at its branch on Charter Road in the town.
MKM has also recruited kitchen design specialist Sally Moore to work with trade and retail clients.
Simon Baldwin, branch director at MKM Ripon, said the showroom not only extended the product range but also introduced an industry-leading level of expertise to the branch.
Baldwin said: “The new showroom features some fantastic kitchens and bathrooms that would be an asset to any home. Although it has only just launched, it is already providing popular with trade and retail customers alike.”
The showroom displays a wide range of stylish and luxurious kitchen designs built to the highest quality and environmental standards by Yorkshire manufacturer Symphony.
Bathrooms are from MKM’s own Instinct range.
MKM joint-founder and Executive Chairman, David Kilburn, said the launch was part of a wider strategy of product expansion and specialisation at the company which also includes roofing, landscaping, plumbing and heating.
“After making a significant investment in our kitchen and bathroom products, we have already seen an increase in sales. The quality of the ranges we offer, combined with the expert knowledge of the designers we employ in each showroom, are the keys to the strategy’s success.”
