History

Our Foundation


FM Distributing is a Stone Supplier and subsidiary of Fox Merchandising International. We currently serve Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Alaska and the Hawaiian Islands.

Fox Merchandising International was established in 1986 by President and CEO, Charles McLaughlin. Charley served in the US Marine Corps in Vietnam and graduated from Rutgers University in 1973. For eight years he managed a masonry products company where his love for natural stone was born. Charley embodies Fox Merchandising International’s personal, passionate approach to customer service. And, having visited many of the world’s finest quarries and manufacturing plants personally, he’s a central figure in maintaining the relationships at the heart of Fox Merchandising International subsidiary FM Distributing.
