In 1946, the partnership of Swanson & Youngdale was formed with a handshake. The company foundation Vern Swanson established runs deep—fueling our growth even to this day. From our very first job painting a house, to painting U.S. Bank Stadium and beyond, Swanson & Youngdale has never strayed from its relentless commitment to quality—always striving to be the best.
Vern’s philosophy – work hard and treat those around you the way you
would like to be treated – was simple, yet effective.
