A Family Tradition and Mission
Joseph Swanson is living a dream. His late father, Clifford Swanson, dreamed of having a family owned business that could be successful while helping promote Christian principles and family values.
The elder Swanson brought the dream to fruition in 1935. With his faith, resolve, hard work and the support of his family, the founding father started a company that sold printed Christian materials and gift items out of a small room above a grocery store in his home state of Pennsylvania.
Slowly, the fledgling company began to make a name for itself, and one success led to another success and then to another. In 1951, the elder Swanson moved his family and the business to St. Petersburg, Florida.
The youngest son, Joseph Swanson, purchased the business in 1963 and moved it the same year to Murfreesboro, Tennessee to be better located geographically.
In January 2004, Victory Christian Center, a local church co-pastored by Adam Swanson, acquired Swanson Christian Products. This business now operates as a not for profit entity.
Swanson Christian Products includes manufacturing and distribution of Christian products. The youngest of Joseph Swanson's children, Adam has overseen this operation since 2000. What began as a dream in a single room atop a store in Pennsylvania is now several diversified companies doing business around the world from Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Swanson Developments, LP owns and manages millions of square feet of industrial, commercial and retail/office property, owns hundreds of acres of real estate for future development, and is in the construction business. In 2000, the family tradition continues as Joseph Swanson's four children Debby, Joe Jr., Carmel and Adam as well as Debby's husband Bruce and Carmel's husband Tom became actively involved in the company's daily operations.
