It was 1955 in Springfield, Massachusetts when Harry Marcus of Marcus Tile realized that he was picking up as much tile at the two distributors in Hartford, Connecticut for other contractors in Springfield as he was for himself.
There were no distributors in Springfield, making it necessary for Harry to go to Hartford just about every day to pick up tile for his four man team of installers. Harry and his wife, Mollie, decided that it was time to go into the distribution business for themselves. The foundation for Best Tile was born when the Marcuses decided to sell their installation business and partner with the Wenczel Tile Company to open up Standard Tile Distributors in August of 1956.
Harry quickly expanded by opening a branch warehouse in Hartford, CT in 1957. This did well and Harry expanded to West Haven, CT in 1958. With his partner in New Haven, Jack Knies, an additional location was opened in Fairfield, CT in 1965. Steve Marcus, Harry & Mollie’s oldest son, entered the business and after managing the Hartford warehouse, and opened a new location in Albany, New York.
It was during the early 1970’s that we began importing tile – first from Japan and later from Italy, Spain, Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, South America, England, France, Germany and Indonesia. By this time, the company was a major player in the tile business in the Northeast. The expansion of the company continued from there.
