Detailed design for the UK’s largest builder’s merchant


Opening its first branch in 1995, MKM Building Supplies has expanded to over 100 branches UK-wide, making it the UK’s largest independent builders’ merchant. The £450m turnover company provides a broad range of building materials for both tradespeople and home DIYers.

Our Challenge

MKM were looking for a creative partner that could deliver quality design efficiently and professionally for the marketing needs of all their branches across the UK.

The work needed to be in keeping with strict brand guidelines and remain consistent throughout each and every project – catering for both home and trade customers.

Outcome Overview

Mattix works closely with the MKM Central Support office in Hull, delivering any and all design work they need for billboards, posters, building signage, internal communications and high quality product brochures.

Our team has also collaborated with MKM to produce promotional videos and design work for several national marketing campaigns.

Tailored to their trade and retail audiences

MKM serves both tradespeople and the general public who require building supplies for at-home DIY projects.

Mattix has created designs that cater to the needs of these two very distinctive audiences, including quarterly and annual product brochures and print materials for the trades and conceptualising national home landscaping campaigns geared towards home consumers.

“Communication is brilliant and the team always produce work to a high standard and is extremely efficient, helping us achieve tight deadlines when we receive last-minute requests from our various branches.”

“There hasn’t ever been a task we’ve briefed to the Mattix team that cannot be done.”
