MKM Building Supplies has signed a landmark deal with top experts Kingspan Insulation Ltd as its exclusive supplier of Polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation.
MKM is the first independent merchant builders’ merchant to partner exclusively with Kingspan – a world-class supplier of insulation products in high demand by the construction industry.
The Kingspan Therma® range is extremely thermally efficient, making it the ideal material to help builders maximise the sustainability and energy efficiency of residential and commercial developments.
Kingspan Insulation – part of Kingspan Group – is a global leader in the design, development and delivery of PIR insulation, meaning the deal will enable MKM Building Supplies to create bespoke solutions for building projects of all types and sizes.
Stephen Bennett, senior product manager at MKM Building Supplies, said the agreement enabled the company to take its customer offer to the next level.
MKM Building Supplies– the UK’s biggest independent – had discussions with a number of leading UK manufacturers but Mr Bennett said Kingspan had come up with the most comprehensive offering:
Kingspan came to us with the full package.
They are a market leader with a premium brand and a premium product, but we have also negotiated a service package that really puts MKM customers at an advantage.
We will stock a lot of the products in branch, but our arrangement with Kingspan means we have immediate access to a whole range of PIR products. Our ability to access these easily means we can get it to our customers efficiently and quickly outperforming other builders’ merchant.
Richard Burnley, Managing Director of Kingspan Insulation, said he was delighted to have become the exclusive supplier of PIR building insulation to MKM Building Supplies.
This partnership will provide customers with easy access to the high performance Kingspan Therma range, backed with our extensive technical support service, including an online knowledge base, making it simple to select the right product and thickness for each job.
Our lightweight, easy-to-handle therma range of products are known throughout the industry for providing excellent thermal performance with a much reduced thickness when compared with traditional products such as mineral fibre.
We are sure customers will appreciate the benefits these products can bring to a wide range of applications.
