MSI Building Distribution Center in Virginia

Orange, CA, January 16, 2023-M S International Inc. (MSI) has broken ground on a 548,000-square-foot distribution center in Suffolk, Virginia. The California-based tile supplier estimates the project will take approximately 20 months to complete.

The state-of-the-art facility will focus on distributing flooring, countertop, wall tile and hardscaping products throughout the region that are imported through the port of Norfolk. MSI's other existing Virginia locations--Dulles, Richmond and Virginia Beach--will continue to focus largely on those specific metropolitan markets.

“This new hub distribution center will dramatically improve our long-term distribution capabilities across the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest,” says MSI president Rup Shah, noting continued improvements at the port.
