MKM enters the hire market with JCB partnership
MKM, the UK’s largest independent builder’s merchant, is continuing to evolve its first-class service offering with a major announcement that the business is entering the hire market for the first time, with its own offering.
The company invested in a fleet of JCB equipment in an exciting new partnership that will see ‘MKM Hire’ officially launched at five MKM branches across the UK – Norwich, Perth, Bromsgrove, Lincoln North, and Manchester Central. Following successful launch MKM plans to roll this fantastic new service offering out nationwide.
Kate Tinsley, MKM’s CEO, said: “Our ethos at MKM has always been about giving our customers what they want and need, which is why we are constantly looking at ways we can develop and enhance the service we provide our customers.”
“Entering the hire market is a fantastic evolution for the business and we are delighted to be working in partnership with TC Harrison JCB.”
The launch of MKM Hire is another major milestone on MKM’s journey. The company recently celebrated its 100th branch opening and continues to build on its reputation as a business that puts its customers first. This, coupled with its unique independent business model, which gives its people the opportunity to run their business to suit the needs of their local customers, have been the fundamentals of MKM’s growth and success.
“Introducing MKM Hire perfectly complements the extensive range of building materials we supply the market and it’s what our customers have been asking for,” continued Kate. “I am really proud of everyone involved that has helped us launch MKM Hire and I am looking forward to developing this proposition further in the future.”
MKM’s initial order will see TC Harrison JCB supply over 80 JCB machines, along with a range of power tools, which will be available for hire at Norwich, Perth, Bromsgrove, Lincoln North, and Manchester Central from September. Deliveries have commenced on the order which includes: micro excavators, mini excavators, tracked Dumpsters, one-tonne site dumpers and hydraulic breakers.
Pete Braybrook, Sales Director at TC Harrison JCB, commented: “We are delighted to be supplying machines and support to MKM, a business that shares the same values as us. This is a really exciting partnership and we are looking forward to supporting MKM and helping MKM Hire become a huge success.”
