Your Peterlee Directors

Terry Magill

Terry’s been with the MKM family since 2006. His background is in timber and he also specialises in sheet and joinery.


Terry recalls his most adventurous and proudest moment was convincing David Kilburn that “Peterlee is the place to be”, and two years later seeing the opening of the new branch.


Terry works alongside a fantastic team. One of his ambitions is to play his part in MKM’s growth and development – confirming we are the biggest and best independent builder’s merchant in the UK!


He enjoys spending time with his family, fishing (which he never gets to do these days), watching Sci Fi and living life to the full.

Simon Preston

Simon has a strong commercial background after graduating from Coventry University with a degree in Business Law.


Employment in the industry started after, with Simon joining a local merchant as a graduate trainee. Within only a few years, Simon had opened two branches of independent building supplies within the Peterlee area. After gaining much more experience and meeting business partner Terry Magill, Simon joined MKM to open the Peterlee branch in 2006.


Having been in the industry over 25 years Simon still enjoys the thrill of something different every day – be it a new challenge or a new customer, he’s always bright and chirpy ready to take on a new day.
