2008

In 2008, KCC expanded further with the takeover of MMF Architectural in Mullingar. Whilst widely acknowledged as specialists in stainless steel fabrication, MMF have extensive knowledge in designing and fabricating in aluminium, mild steel and brass. In addition to working with a range of complementary materials such as wood, stone, marble and glass.
