Bolick Distributors was founded in 1959
by Gene and Ruth Anne Bolick. In the early years the company sold only wall tile but soon expanded product
offerings to a broader selection of ceramic tile while based in a modest 8,000 square foot warehouse located in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana. During the 1960’s, as the business continued to develop, additional types of flooring
products were added to compliment ceramic tile including carpet, cushion and supplies. Eventually a full
compliment of residential and commercial product lines were in play. The business flourished and over time additional locations
were added to support growth, including the continued expansion of the Baton Rouge warehouse facility.
Now, after more than fifty plus years in business, Bolick Distributors
has grown into one of the largest, multi-location distributors in the gulf south. The company now services
an expanded market footprint that includes the entire states of Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama, in addition
to the greater Memphis Tennessee area and border markets in Texas and the panhandle of Florida. From two
company owned facilities and two service partner facilities, representing in excess of 150,000 square feet of warehouse space,
Bolick provides convenient will call service and operates a fleet of company owned trucks that reach more than 2500 retail
In 1998, Interior Building Supply,
Corp. purchased the company from Gene Bolick. Our business philosophy of today remains consistent with
the simple operating principle that Bolick Distributors was built on – to offer our customers high quality products
at competitive prices with reliable customer service. We strive to innovate through superior marketing
and the continued sourcing of high quality trusted brands, in addition to trademarked custom private label offerings.
We give you our pledge to build on our many years of industry experience by continuing to invest in better business
systems, continually improve our customer service performance, and to nurture the employee culture that makes doing business
with Bolick Distributors something special.
