MSI has increased the size of its Houston facility by 25,000 sq. ft. The location includes more than 210,000 sq. ft. of slabs, flooring, wall tile, and hardscaping.
M S International Inc. (“MSI”) recently updated and expanded its Houston, Texas Showroom and Distribution Center. Already one of the area’s largest showrooms of its kind, MSI has increased the size of its Houston facility by 25,000 sq. ft. The location now boasts more than 210,000 sq. ft. of on-trend surfaces—from tile and countertops, to slabs, flooring, and hardscaping. Throughout the expansive space, new displays and creative installs inspire customers, while allowing them to get hands-on with the products and easily envision them in their homes.
A highlight of the showroom is the thoroughly remodeled Q™ Premium Natural Quartz gallery. Carefully designed with the shopping experience in mind, the gallery now displays even more of the Q™ product line—including the latest color and style introductions. Houston’s 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.
Underscoring MSI’s commitment to a superior experience, a will-call area helps expedite customer orders and a new service desk serves as the facility’s hub—a go-to place for customer pick-ups and questions. Additionally, several departments now operate a second shift. This increases the facility’s overall efficiency as employees unload incoming containers and stock trucks with the next day’s deliveries.
Raj Shah, President of MSI, explains why taking upgrades through to the warehouse was an especially important aspect of the project, “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.” He adds, “We’ve succeeded. 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%.”
In all, MSI’s Houston location houses one of the largest, most diverse, and extensive inventories of flooring, countertops, and hardscaping in the region. MSI invites visits to the facility. The Houston Showroom and Distribution Center is located at: 14777 Chrisman Road, Houston, TX 77039.
