About Us

Employer Responsibility

At MKM, we have a passion for offering a first rate, knowledgeable and honest service to our customers and strive to build close relationships with clients, suppliers and our staff. We are also a responsible employer and aim to employ and retain the best.

Health & Safety

We take our duty of care to provide a safe environment for all of our employees, customers and visitors seriously. In support of this, we provide health and safety training to all new employees. We also ensure that we equip all of our staff with the necessary personal protective equipment and strive to prevent or minimise the possibility of any risks. These and a number of other measures ensure that we meet all legislative requirements.

Equal Opportunities

MKM is committed to the principles of Equal Opportunities in recruitment, employment, training and development. In support of this commitment we aim to ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or political beliefs.

Pensions and Employment Benefits

In addition to salary, other benefits include a generous bonus scheme, uniform (where appropriate), staff discount and increasing holidays with length of service. We also provide the opportunity for employees to contribute to a stakeholder pension scheme with Aegon.


Whether it’s the products we sell or those we use in our branches and offices, we are committed to ethical and sustainable sourcing. A number of our branches are working towards Chain of Custody accreditation, to allow them to supply environmentally certified timber, and we offer a wide range of sustainable building products including rainwater harvesting systems, ground-source heat pumps and high-efficiency boilers.

We are implementing systems to reduce our impact upon the environment including waste minimisation programmes to reduce the amount we send to landfill, and initiatives to reduce our water usage. The whole MKM team is working together to reduce our energy consumption and business mileage too.


We offer our customers a transparent service and aim to provide them with expert advice wherever possible. By working closely with our suppliers, we offer the most competitive prices and the best quality products on the market.
