Oxford United are delighted to welcome MKM Building Supplies as Match Sponsor for the U’s’ Sky Bet League 1 clash with Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Priding themselves as the UK’s largest independent builders’ merchants, MKM have recently opened their 80th branch in Wallingford and are open for both local building trade and retail customers.

With experts in plumbing, landscaping, and general building, MKM’s knowledgeable staff members have a great understanding of the needs of the local people. Their product and industry expertise will ensure you experience a personable customer service to meet your needs.

On their 1.2-acre site, at Lupton Road, MKM also have kitchen and bathroom showrooms for you to view in store. Whether you need a stylish new surrounding to cook, or an updated area for you to bathe, MKM’s attentive staff will be on hand to support your design dreams.

MKM Wallingford, headed-up by two branch directors, Stephen Busby and Liam Baldwin, is the first to open in the Oxfordshire area, ensuring a short trip for Oxford United supporters to purchase their building supplies. The branch is also able to offer FREE Next Day Delivery to customers in the local area, allowing a prominent start to any building or DIY projects you may have.

Liam Baldwin, Branch Director, told us, “This is a great time to get involved with Oxford United, with our branch having opened its doors on Monday this week. With many of us at the Wallingford branch avid supporters of the club, it was an exciting opportunity to commence a relationship with the U’s.”

“DIY and home improvement are greatly in vogue and the local construction industry in Oxfordshire remains as robust as ever- with a combination of new build estates, repairs, maintenance and extensions. In business, the opportunities are always there if you listen to the market and adapt accordingly.”

When asked what message he would give to the boys ahead of the game, Liam said, “Keep your heads up and keep playing a high standard of football. You've all got the talent. It’s a big six-pointer against Charlton; I believe in you!”.

During the pandemic, MKM’s branch in Wallingford was able to give back to some of the local community when times were tough. The brand proudly employed an additional 17 members of staff, increasing the job opportunities In Oxfordshire when unemployment rates were high.
