MS International, Inc. (MSI), a leading North American distributor of natural stone, announced the opening of two new distribution centers in Phoenix, AZ, and Braintree, MA.

The 45,000-square-foot Phoenix facility sits on five acres and facilitates service to MSI's customers in the Southwest - particularly Arizona and New Mexico. The distribution center inventories the company's full range of natural stone products, including slabs, tiles, flagstone and landscape materials. Stone varieties include granite, marble, slate, travertine, limestone, sandstone and other materials. The facility includes fully air-conditioned slab storage, specialized lighting and a state-of-the-art showroom.

“With our long-term commitment to Phoenix, we will be able to offer another source for all their natural stone needs,� said Manu Shah, CEO of MSI. In addition to the inventory being stocked in Arizona, daily truck transfers from MSI's 13-acre, 200,000-square-foot facility in Orange, CA, will bolster the Phoenix location's inventory.

The Arizona distribution center is located at: 4910 W. Roosevelt Street, Phoenix, AZ 85043; Phone: 602-393-6330; E-mail:

MSI's 55,000-square-foot facility in Braintree includes overhead cranes, eight interior loading docks, specialized light for slabs, and a state-of-the-art showroom. In addition, MSI maintains a full fleet of trucks for timely delivery.

“In the last three years, consumer demand for natural stone in New England has increased at astronomical rates,� Shah explained. “Our New England distribution center aims to fill this demand by providing wholesalers of natural stone a one-stop source for all their natural stone needs.� Shah added that this expansion in New England - combined with MSI's 81,000-square-foot distribution center in Edison, NJ - “further reinforces MSI's commitment to the Northeast.�
