Fred Schwan, Jr. founded Lighthouse Marble Works, Inc. in 1973 after a trip to California to learn the ins and outs of the cultured marble production process. He went at the urging of his father, who sold small amounts of the product out of this own store, our current sister company, Mississippi Coast Supply, in downtown Biloxi. From humble beginnings in a 1,500 square foot warehouse, we have since grown to a 32,000 square foot facility with an expansive showroom and manufacturing plant.
Over the years, we’ve expanded our product line to include shower surrounds, shower pans, 16 different bath tub styles and sizes, as well as a full range of accessories which include soap dishes, mirror frames, and even Grecian columns. In addition to cultured marble, we also carry our own line of solid surface kitchen counter tops as well as a material called Tru-Stone which makes cultured marble look and feel more like real granite or marble for a fraction of the cost. We also install heavy frameless and frame type shower doors. Fred Schwan, Jr. pioneered the cultured marble industry in our area, and since our doors first opened in 1973 we have remained the leading manufacturer and installer of cultured marble products on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We’re proud of our legacy and our products, and we look forward to working with you.
