Hull-based MKM Building Supplies has opened a branch in Newent near Gloucester, its 48th site nationally, creating 14 jobs.

With a product portfolio catering to the public as well as trade, MKM Newent at Newant Business Park will offer the merchant’s usual array of landscaping, plumbing, roofing, heating, timber and building supplies.

We’ll be showing Newent and the surrounding areas what MKM’s brand is all about – fantastic product range, great prices and unbeatable customer service.”
