M S International (MSI) recently updated and expanded its Houston showroom and distribution center. Already one of the area’s largest showrooms, MSI increased the size of its facility by 25,000 sq ft to more than 210,000 sq ft. Throughout the space, new displays and creative installs inspire customers, while allowing them to get hands-on with the products and envision them in their homes.

The Q Premium Natural Quartz gallery was remodeled, designed with the shopping experience in mind to display more of the Q product line, including the latest color and style introductions. The 10,000 sq ft hardscaping showroom also received significant upgrades, with walls now showcasing MSI’s full line of ledger panels and displays featuring a wide variety of natural stone and porcelain pavers. MSI also added a will-call area to help expedite customer orders and a new service desk that serves as the facility’s hub. Several departments now operate a second shift.

“Demand for our slabs in the Houston market is quite strong, so making upgrades to serve our customers with greater efficiency, while giving them more traditional-to-on trend choices was essential,” said Raj Shah, president of MSI. “The remodeled warehouse is state-of-the-art floor to ceiling, and includes an innovative narrow aisle racking system that has enabled us to increase warehouse inventory by a remarkable 30%.”
