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 almost sixty 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 dealers.


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.
