MKM Building Supplies opens new warehouse at Haverhill

Taurus Developments and Hammond Rutts are delighted to see national builders merchants’ business, MKM Building Supplies open a new 20,000 sq ft unit on Haverhill Business Park this month.

MKM, which has over 50 stores across England and Scotland, agreed a pre-let on Plot 4, taking a 20-year lease on the two-acre site. This is its first East Anglia location, which currently employs 16 staff.

Haverhill Business Park has a number of design-and-build opportunities, ranging from 2,500-265,000 sq ft on the remaining six plots.

Commenting on the MKM’s new store opening, Michael Gibbens, Managing Director of Taurus Developments, said:

“The strength of the offering at Haverhill Business Park attracted MKM to this location. With outline planning consent granted on the remainder of the site, we have seen plenty of interest from potential occupiers.

“Haverhill Business Park is well placed to deliver further development and with lack of similar opportunities in the area, we expect to announce further lettings in the near future.”

Joint marketing agents are BNP Paribas and LSH.
