Shur-Way started in 1971 owned by Mike’s dad, Earl Swederska Sr. Mike has been a part of the business since day one. In 1995 he bought the business from his mom & dad and immediately began making vital improvements and is still updating to keep up with changing times. We underwent a major renovation in 2008 which proved to be a wise decision.
Shur-Way was the 1st in the Midwest to bring water-based paint technology to our industry. The decision of which paint company came after a full year of experimenting and studying every paint manufacturer’s product, keeping in mind quality, endurance, low VOC’s and production. The decision was made to stay with our current vendor, PPG for many reasons foremost being the lowest VOC (volitole organic compound) product in the industry. This was just the start of Shur-Way evolving into what it is today.
Today we are a family working towards keeping our customers and growing our business. Our staff consists of Mike Swederska Sr., President, wife Vicky, sons Mike Jr., Quin & Ben, niece Leana, along with Ben’s fiance’ Shandi, nephew Charlie and half brother Charlie Sr. We are also proud of our additional employees that have been with us for many years Chris (15 Years), Steve(8 Years), Phil(5 Years), John(8 Years),Brian,Bobby(4 Years) and Ryan(5 Years). We have employed a number of our techs at Graduation from Ranken Tech. Our salesman, John travels around town promoting Shur-Way and getting the word out about the business we are so proud of. Working with family is a dream come true and we plan to pass the tradition on.
In addition to being a strong part of the Maplewood community and teaching aikido at Shin-Gane Aikido, Mike is also involved in many other organizations including the Ozark Fly Fishers, Sierra Club, Federation of Fly Fishers and Life member of Trout Unlimited.
