HOUSTON, TX - M S international, Inc. (MSI), a leading North American importer and distributor of natural stone, announced that it has opened a new distribution center in Houston, TX. The state-of-the-art, 180,000-square-foot distribution center and showroom located on over 12 acres will be one of the largest natural stone facilities in the country, MSI reports. The facility is expected to be fully operational beginning June 1, 2008.

This new distribution center in addition to one in Dallas, will allow MSI to significantly broaden its inventory of natural stone, porcelain, ceramic and quartz surfaces, and better serve its customers in the Southwest region. The new facility adds to MSI’s national reach with distribution centers across the country. Anil Palasamudrum, a 15-year veteran of the stone industry, will manage the branch.

“With the opening of Houston, MSI will be able to efficiently distribute natural stone products across the important Southwest and Midwest markets,” said Manu Shah, CEO of MSI. “The new facility will enable MSI to maintain among the largest inventories in the Southwest.”

The new location is ideally situated in Houston, close to Bush International Airport, with easy access to Beltway 8, Hardy Toll road and Freeway 45. The address of the new location is 14777 Chrisman Road, Houston, TX 77039.
