Since Floyd Wright started with one truck in 1969, Affton has been committed to making a difference through our people and our business relationships. Today our company is still owned and operated by the Wright family. A few years might have passed since 1969 but one thing that has not changed is the desire to provide excellent service for our customers and a great working environment for our employees.
