MSI, the leading supplier of premium surfaces in North America, announced the launch of a new showroom and distribution center in St. Louis, Missouri. The company plans to invest more than $3 million in the facility and add 18 jobs over the next five years.
“We are excited to welcome MSI to Missouri,” Governor Mike Parson said. “MSI’s investment and job creation at its new showroom and distribution center are proof that our focus on workforce and infrastructure are key to attracting new businesses to our state. We appreciate MSI’s commitment to Missouri and look forward to the company’s success in our state.”
The new, 64,000 square foot facility, which includes an 8,000 square foot product showroom featuring quartz, porcelain, natural stone, mosaics, laminate, and luxury vinyl plank surfaces, will serve both residential and commercial markets in the St. Louis region.
“As the Gateway to the West, St. Louis and the bi-state region play an integral role in the economy,” said Raj Shah, President, MSI. “MSI is proud to offer our surfacing products to this growing region and looks forward to becoming a contributing member of the community.”
“St. Louis County is a great place to showcase a business, and MSI’s showroom and distribution center will be a great addition to our region,” said County Executive Dr. Sam Page. “Welcome!”
“MSI’s decision to invest in St. Louis indicates the value of our region,” said Steve Johnson, Chief Business Attraction Officer, Greater St. Louis, Inc., and President, AllianceSTL. “Their presence here will bolster a variety of industries, including construction, remodeling and warehousing, and our local talent and central location will help establish their brand in a new market — all while adding good quality jobs.”
“It is always a great day when a company like MSI decides to invest in Missouri,” Missouri Partnership CEO Subash Alias said. “Missouri’s central location will allow MSI to market their premium surface products to new markets and customers more efficiently than ever before. MSI’s investment in the St. Louis metro, and the new jobs they will create, are a testament to Missouri’s pro-business environment, and the world-class talent that calls the state home.”
