Swiff-Train Co., a 73-year-old family-owned flooring distribution company, has relocated to a new 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse, distribution and call center in San Antonio at 5501 Mid Cities Parkway. The company operates six other 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.

Kenneth Train, Swiff-Train’s exec vp sales and marketing, is honored for 50 years of service, flanked by brothers (from left) Jeffrey Train (exec vp operations) and L.A. Train (president).

“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 Jeffrey 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.
