MSI Honored for U.S. Tile Sales ORANGE, CA — MSI has been recognized by the Valencian Institute for Business Competitiveness, the company announced. The award, presented at a recent gala event in Valencia, Spain, recognized MSI for its "contribution to the promotion of ceramic tile and its significant volume of tile imported in 2018," company officials said. "MSI is not only one of the nation's leading tile importers, but also one of the largest Spanish tile importers in the U.S.," said MSI Senior Merchant Paulo Pereira. "It's a distinction we're quite proud of, especially as we're continually looking to make ceramic tile more affordable and accessible." Exports of ceramic tile to the U.S. have increased over the last five years, "and MSI has been a significant driver of this trend," Pereira said. "We're importing more ceramic tile than ever before, as the U.S. consumer is embracing tile for its wide range of looks, durability and competitive price."

"In Texas, the company sees an opportunity to serve some of the country's fastest-growing housing markets, including Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas," Goldstein said. "Our Houston location will give our partners in the South and Southwest a competitive advantage in the marketplace."
