Top Track 250

The pandemic led this builders’ merchant to close its 73 branches, but after taking measures to protect staff and customers it reopened all of them in late April. The firm also has an online store and a specialist division, MKM Leisure, which supplies caravan and holiday home manufacturers. Founded in 1995 and headquartered in Hull, it is majority owned by Bain Capital and run by chief executive David Kilburn, 75.
