M S International, Inc. (MSI), a leading distributor of natural stone, quartz and tile in North America, has significantly expanded its operations in the Midwest. MSI recently opened a tile distribution center in Elk Grove Village, IL - near Chicago. The opening of this new tile facility enables MSI to double its slab capacity in the region. With both a tile and slab facility in Chicago, MSI now has over 120,000 square feet of warehouse space in which to store more than 500 truckloads of natural stone. The newly renovated slab facility will be one of the largest slab facilities in the Midwest region. The site will stock MSI’s full line of over 250 colors of granite, marble, quartz, travertine, onyx, limestone and slate slabs. The facility will exhibit a number of state-of-the-art features, including five overhead cranes, RFID, lighting and carpeting - all with the goal of providing a premium slab-selection experience. The new tile warehouse is conveniently located next to its current facility in Elk Grove Village. The distribution center will have capacity for over 300 truckloads of granite, marble, travertine, slate, limestone, porcelain, ceramic and decorative items.

“Despite the current economic environment, the expansion of MSI-Chicago demonstrates MSI’s long-term commitment to its customers in the Midwest region,” explained Sanjay Sanghvi, MSI’s Senior Vice President. “From both a geographical and distribution perspective, MSI-Chicago can efficiently distribute product to the states of Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri and Indiana. With this additional space, we can continue to broaden our existing product lines of natural stone, tile and quartz surfaces to benefit our customers. Indeed, with this additional distribution facility, MSI’s Illinois branch now boasts over 2 million square feet of natural stone and tile inventory available to service its customers.” The new tile distribution center is located at 940 Greenleaf Avenue in Elk Grove Village. It can be reached by phone at 847-758-0556 and by fax at 847-758-0567.
