Who We Are

Frank Painter Company, LLC (FPC) is a mechanical and thermal energy systems company focusing on commercial HVAC, plumbing, and industrial systems that was founded by Frank L Painter, P.E. in 2021. The idea for FPC is simple: develop solutions for customer’s needs using engineering precision with a Mechanical Contractor’s know-how. Our company philosophy is “Do It Right the First Time” and we live by this principal.

Mr. Painter brings almost 20 years’ experience in business serving in operations, design, construction, and commissioning roles. Graduating from UTSA in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and earning a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University, Frank went to work for the US Army Corps of Engineers in Fort Worth as a mechanical design engineer. Being a San Antonio native, Mr. Painter transferred from Fort Worth to San Antonio to work at Fort Sam Houston for the USACE as a construction advisor focusing on Mechanical and Plumbing construction. After a successful career with the USACE, Frank decided to pursue a career outside of Federal Service and joined a major Mechanical Contractor in Texas to lead their in-house mechanical engineering department. During this time, Mr. Painter served as the Engineer of Record on many projects and served as mentor to several up-and-coming engineers. In 2018, an opportunity to join a Federal Design-Build General Contractor became available and Frank signed on as Vice President of Mechanical Construction. In this role, he helped grow the department from strictly a Federal Contractor to other markets including Higher Ed, Healthcare, and Industrial. He served in this role up until founding FPC.
