New partnership is set to grow Ruukki’s presence in the UK.
Ruukki Construction and M4C, the Northumberland-based sales and business consultancy, have announced a strategic collaboration to develop the UK market for Ruukki’s range of high-quality steel-based composite products for walls and roofs of both commercial and residential buildings.
M4C was founded in 2018 by Managing Director Matthew Curtis and has been providing strategic consultancy and business support to the Construction, Engineering & Chemical Sectors. Prior to M4C, Matthew was Managing Director of Trimo (UK), a similar business to Ruukki that was involved in the supply of building envelope materials to projects such as the Manchester Airport Terminal 2 transformation, and Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre. Matthew knows the sector well, and over the past 20 years he has worked for organisations such as Saint Gobain, Hilti, Akzo Nobel and Syntha Pulvin.
Matthew commented: “I am delighted to be able to partner with Ruukki and to assist them to grow their UK market share. I believe the market is open to working with suppliers that are pro-active and reliable.”
M4C has been granted permission to trade in the UK as Ruukki UK on behalf of Ruukki Polska Sp Z o o.
