Home News Swiff-Train opens new facility in San Antonio

San Antonio—Swiff-Train has opened a new 40,000 square foot San Antonio warehouse, distribution and call center. The company, which operates seven statewide branches in Corpus Christi, Victoria, Harlingen, Dallas, Austin and a distribution center in Houston, has opened the new facility to service this area of the state.

“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,” said Jeffrey Train, executive vice president of operations. “We now also have the space to double the capacity. We now have 11 truck bays which include ease of use, weather protection, dock bay workers protection, and customer height doors for easier van level loading for customer pick up.”

The San Antonio branch opened in 1962 in the southern part of the city, moving to the most recent location in 1967 where it had been for 43 years. Swiff-Train Company’s new customer service call center serves their entire Texas area distribution customer base, as well as the company’s nationwide brand of flooring, EarthWerks

“Great people and great relationships matter, especially in these times,” said L.A. Train, president. “Our company philosophy is founded on employee and customer relationships and that’s so valuable. The new San Antonio center is great for everyone.”

Along with L.A. and Jeffery Train, Kenneth Train, executive vice president of sales and marketing, together have expanded the operation started by their father. At the San Antonio grand opening, Kenneth Train was presented an award for 50 years of service, recognizing his dedication to the company.
