Paper & Board

MKD International started its paper and board distribution business in 1988 in middle Tennessee by Zaki, Nazih and Kamel Daouk. MKD is a family business with focus on product innovation and customized service to the Southeast and Midwest regions. MKD’s reputation is built on a fair way of doing business with customers and suppliers.

MKD introduced several new and alternative products to the market from global suppliers. With its own technical team and the mills cooperation, most products were carefully adapted with the US market in mind.

Strategic Synergy

MKD International has entered into an agreement with CellMark to jointly develop specific paper and board segments within the North American market. This strategic cooperation will bring additional sourcing and provide a wider market reach. As MKD will be delegating its financing and customer service to Cellmark for its current and future business, its new focus will be on forming relationships and expanding market share.

Real estate

Investment in commercial and residential real estate development in the middle Tennessee region is managed by Magnolia Properties. Projects are handled by the Daouk family and some are a joint cooperation or an investment with other development companies.
