A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Stokes was founded in 1944, and has been in my family since the early 1960s. When I joined in 1984, we were a two-truck service operation; now we’re at 25 trucks and counting, and the third generation of the Swaintek family is becoming more and more involved in the business.

We’ve grown into the largest distributor of loading dock equipment, industrial doors, and hydraulic lift equipment serving PA, NJ, DE, and MD. Across these regions, we’ve earned the trust and confidence of some of the most successful businesses, large and small – for a few simple reasons: unsurpassed quality, experience, service, and safety.

Throughout our history, our company and our employees have been guided by traditional values that include honesty, integrity, and a commitment to the highest ethical standards; all of our employees are empowered to do the right thing.

We offer the safest and most dependable products available. We’re expanding the reach of our service capabilities, and are committed to doing whatever it takes to be your one-stop loading dock and industrial door partner. Each and every day.

Sincerely,

Thomas M. Swaintek signature
