MSI Plans St. Louis, Missouri, Distribution Hub
The new, 64,000-square-foot facility, which includes an 8,000-square-foot product showroom featuring quartz, porcelain, natural stone, mosaics, laminate and luxury vinyl plank surfaces, is located at 2067 Westport Center Drive and will serve both residential and commercial markets in the bi-state region.
“As the Gateway to the West, St. Louis and the bi-state region play an integral role in the economy. MSI is proud to offer our surfacing products to this growing region and looks forward to becoming a contributing member of the community,” said Raj Shah, president, MSI.
The project was supported by Missouri Partnership, St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and Greater St. Louis, Inc.
“It is always a great day when a company like MSI decides to invest in Missouri,” Missouri Partnership CEO Subash Alias said. “Missouri’s central location will allow MSI to market their premium surface products to new markets and customers more efficiently than ever before. MSI’s investment in the St. Louis metro, and the new jobs they will create, are a testament to Missouri’s pro-business environment, and the world-class talent that calls the state home.”
MSI is the leading North American distributor of flooring, countertops, wall tile, backsplash tile, and landscaping products. Product lines include natural stone, luxury vinyl planks, porcelain tile, quartz, granite, marble, quartzite and more.
“MSI’s decision to invest in St. Louis indicates the value of our region,” said Steve Johnson, chief business attraction officer, Greater St. Louis, Inc., and president, AllianceSTL. “Their presence here will bolster a variety of industries, including construction, remodeling and warehousing, and our local talent and central location will help establish their brand in a new market, all while adding good quality jobs.”
