2018 marks 50 years of business for Melcer Tile Company, a tile and stone distributor based in Charleston, S.C. The business was founded by Mel and Phyllis Rauton in 1968, and is currently owned and operated by 2nd generation tile distributor, Jay Rauton.
Back in April, the company hosted a 50th anniversary BBQ for nearly 200 customers, vendors and friends. It included prize drawings, reminiscences from the company’s 50-year history and fellowship.
“ We are so thankful to our customers and our community for so many years of support,” said Rauton, who is president of the company. “We look forward to facing the challenges of the future while keeping in mind the lessons of the past.”
