David Kilburn, Executive Chairman of MKM Building Supplies, has been honoured with a lifetime achievement award for his outstanding contribution to the builders’ merchant industry.
He was presented with the accolade at the Builders’ Merchants Awards 2012, at a gala dinner at London’s Lancaster Hotel on November 23rd, on the same night that we won Independent Builders’ Merchant of the Year.

It is the sixth time in eight years that we have won the category and we are thrilled with the result! David, who looks far too young to be honoured for his lifetime’s work (!), described the triumphs as a highlight of his career and dedicated the victories to all MKM’s staff.
He said: “The lifetime achievement award is fantastic to receive but I wouldn’t have been able to do half the things I have done if it wasn’t for the people within this business.
“Each member of our staff, in every branch, gives their all to MKM and that makes me immensely proud of each and every one of them.”
