History

Our Foundation


Fox Merchandising International, Inc. was established in 1986 and through a natural progression brought to the building and construction industry, Fox Marble and FM Distributing™. The founder, Mr. Charles McLaughlin, serves as Chief Executive Officer and President of Fox Merchandising International, Inc.

Mr. McLaughlin 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. This passion became the inspiration for Fox Merchandising International, Inc. With his personal and ardent approach to customer service, he saw a need to provide a customer focused model that supported the vision and craftsmanship within the industry. Having visited many of the world’s finest quarries and manufacturing plants, his desire to offer artisanship is the center of Fox Merchandising International and it’s subsidiaries.
