OUR HISTORY

about trailer300Trend Services, Inc. was founded in 1980 by owner and CEO James L. Swain. The business actually began as a small pump company located in Broussard, Louisiana. Mr. Swain soon realized that many of his customers were in need of on-site accommodations, as his clients often asked about these services. Seeing an opportunity, Mr. Swain expanded his business to include living quarters and related equipment. By the late 1980s, Trend Services had completely phased out the pump division of its business and was focused solely on accommodations and support equipment rental.

The 1990s saw great success at Trend Services, as the company opened its first branch in Navasota, Texas in 1993. The company continued to expand over the years, adding multiple branches throughout Texas as well as an Arkansas location.

In 2010, Mr. Swain’s son, Jimmy Swain, became president of Trend Services, Inc. Jimmy had joined the company in 1982 working in the field, and learned the business from the ground up by gaining hands-on experience in almost every aspect of the company. In 2012, the company opened new branches in Odessa, Texas and Weatherford, Oklahoma – bringing the total number of locations to eight.

Today, Trend Services continues to thrive under the leadership of president Jimmy Swain, Jr. and founder James L. Swain, who still serves as Chief Executive Officer. The company remains committed to providing quality products and exceptional service to its many loyal customers throughout the region.
