MKM Building Supplies has expanded its retail portfolio with the acquisition of fellow Hull business Brooke Ceramics, an independent tile and bathroom store.
MKM said the acquisition of Broke Ceramics, a family-run company founded in 1925, will enhance its product and service offering to both trade and retail customers.
Brooke Ceramics’ showroom is located near to MKM’s Hull branch on Stoneferry road allowing the business to develop locally.
“We have found a like-minded company in Brooke Ceramics which places the customer at the heart of the business,” said David Kilburn, Executive Chairman of MKM.
“The team at Brooke Ceramics is highly skilled, has superb product knowledge and a great distribution network. We are confident this will be a great asset and look forward to the opportunities ahead.”
Geoff Brooke of Brooke Ceramics added: “MKM has an impressive reputation in the industry and is well-known for its commitment to the local building trade.
“Our team is excited at the prospect of becoming part of MKM’s dynamic growth, while continuing to maintain the UK’s most extensive range of wall and floor tiles for our customers.”
