Swest, in Dallas, used to have Eastern Star components.
Um, maybe. But "used to" is the operative term here. Swest closed
down well over a decade ago (don't recall just when). Stuller bought
them, kind of absorbed what they needed of Swest, closed it down, and
since then, about all that remains is older second hand equipment
that still has their nameplate on it. Swest doesn't exist any more.
(pity. was a decent supplier to deal with)
