Integrity, Expertise, Hard Work & Lifelong Relationships

STC has over 8 decades of operational excellence, beginning in in 1937 when Swiff-Train Company opened in Corpus Christi, TX in the cotton business.  In 1938, Herbert Train became the sole owner and later grew into an active importer and exporter of steel.   After WWII, Swiff-Train entered the flooring business in 1959 by buying the inventory of a San Antonio distributor’s CC location, thus creating Swiff-Train Company, flooring distributor.

The Company was later passed to Herbert and Anne Train’s three sons, LA, Kenny and Jeffery. In 2014, Stonebridge Partners acquired the Company, writing a new chapter to the Swiff-Train story.  Today STC continues to bring sourcing expertise, supply and delivery of flooring products to a global network of customers.  STC is “Strengthening the Core” to proactively build on this history to continue to offer superior service in the flooring industry.  

These are just a few things that have made STC a pinnacle of excellence for over 80 years, and we strive to not only preserve these values, but to instill our own modern Guiding Principles into our lives and the work we lead every day.
