James "Jake" Swaim founded Swaim Ornamental Iron Works in 1950 behind his house. After establishing the company as Winston-Salem’s most trusted and creative iron fabricator, the company continued to grow, and eventually moved to Waughtown Street in the late 1950s.
Don Swaim started helping his father in the 1950s until he joined the Army. After his service, Don returned to the family business in 1956.
Swaim Ornamental Iron Works is still a family-owned and -operated business. Don's son, Trent, and daughter, Tandi, strive to maintain the same quality and dependability that has made the company respected in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina, community for so many years.
