MSI Stone Tile by MS international

Natural Stone Tile for Bath and Kitchen

MS International is a leading distributor of wall tile, flooring, countertops, and hardscaping products in North America. Based in California, MS International imports thousands of natural and manufactured products from over 35 countries and 6 continents. It was established in 1975 by the husband and wife duo of Manu and Rika Shah. The couple emigrated from India with less than $1,000 in their pockets and started the business from the basement of their home in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

One fateful day, MSI Stone was able to secure the contract to supply the black granite for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. The couple invested their life savings into this project and spent endless nights trying to make sure the project was executed perfectly. Because of the success of the project, they decided to pursue the business and develop MS International full time. The company was later moved to California to expand their business.


MS International Distribution Growth

Previously, until 1987, MSI served mainly as a distributor for monuments and tombstones but realized that the market potential of natural stone for commercial and residential use had the most potential. MS International then directed their efforts to develop this sector of the industry. The company later expanded and opened their second location in New Jersey.
