Swiff-Train opens new San Antonio warehouse
November 19, 2010
Swiff-Train Co., a 73 year old family-owned flooring distribution company, has opened a new 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse, distribution and call center in San Antonio. The company operates seven branches across Texas, including Corpus Christi, Victoria, Harlingen, Dallas, Austin and Houston.
“With our purchase of the new building, we were able to design a facility to optimize warehouse and offices to be efficient as well as giving all employees a fresh, new workspace and outlook. We also have the space to grow to double the capacity. We now have 11 truck bays,” said Jeffrey Train, exec vp operations. For installers, the company also offers a new and expanded tool and sundries store.
“Great people and great relationships matter, especially in these times. Our company philosophy is founded on employee and customer relationships and that’s so valuable. The new San Antonio center is great for everyone,” noted L.A. Train, president.
L.A. and Jeffery Train, along with brother Kenneth Train (exec vp sales and marketing), have grown and expanded the operation started by their father. At the San Antonio grand opening, Kenneth Train was presented the 50 Years of Service Award for his dedication to the company.
The San Antonio branch originally opened in 1962 in south San Antonio, moving to the recent location in 1967 where it had been for 43 years. Swiff-Train’s new customer service call center serves its entire Texas area distribution customer base as well as the company’s nationwide brand of flooring, EarthWerks.
