About The Swan Corporation
The Swan Corporation is a leader in the manufacture of quality products for the Kitchen and Bath. Our Swanstone products offer the toughest impact strength of any solid surface material. Our proprietary compression molding process using fiber reinforcement created the only 1/4" solid surface material recommended for use in horizontal applications when laminated to particle board. With Swanstone, you get a material that's not only impact resistant, but lighter and more temperature resistant than other solid surfaces. Our compression molding process allows us to manufacture one piece vanity tops with integral sinks and backsplashes, kitchen counters with backsplash and front returns and island counters with returns. And unlike other solid surface manufacturers, all of the Swanstone products are available in both solid and aggregate colors. More information can be found at www.theswancorp.com.
