When Jerry Fox began his career in the tile industry in 1961, he never dreamed it would eventually become his legacy. As a young sole-proprietor, Jerry did it all. Working seven days a week, he saw each project through to completion. He worked hard to build relationships with his clients, while his wife, Mary Kay, did the bookkeeping. Ten years later, they made it official by launching their own small business known as Fox Ceramic Tile in St. Marys, KS.
Fast forward to 1996.
Having recently earned an engineering degree from Kansas State University, Jerry's son Kevin decided to join his dad in the family business. Kevin realized his time spent in the engineering field would be a distinct advantage for the company. This proved to be true, and in 2000 Kevin purchased the company from his dad. He took over as President, assuming responsibility for day to day operations. Kevin still enjoys the engineering aspect that is associated with the high quality of work that Fox Ceramic Tile delivers on a daily basis. It allows him to bring a unique perspective and competitive advantage
to every project he's involved with.
Together, Jerry and Kevin have grown their company into what is now known throughout the entire Midwest as one of the highest quality tile installation companies in the industry.
