In 1937, Swiff-Train Company was founded by Joseph Swiff and his son-in-law Herbert Train. Initially, the business began in Corpus Christi, TX with reprocessing damaged or loose cotton, expanding after World War II into the exportation and importation of a variety of steel and agricultural products. In 1959, Swiff-Train began servicing Central and South Texas with their newly added floor covering and countertop surfacing products.
Today, Swiff-Train Company, still family-owned and operated—extending to the fourth generation actively involved in the business—is primarily a wholesale floor covering distributor. Family values and ethics transcend into respect and commitment to not only employees, but to customers and vendors as well. Swiff-Train prides themselves on quality and service and strives to provide its customer base with superior products at fair prices.
With seven distribution locations, more than 175 employees and over 200,000 square feet of warehousing space, Swiff-Train Company promptly services the entire states of Texas and Oklahoma and parts of Louisiana and Arkansas. This family-owned enterprise proudly supports some of the top brands in the industry, as well as successfully marketing and distributing quality floor covering products under their own brand of Earthwerks, which is recognized globally.
Swiff-Train Company is a well-respected diversified company with deep ties internationally, nationally, and locally. It's no wonder why so many valued employees pledge decades of service to this company and choose to call Swiff-Train their "family".
