History – Texas Stagecoach began in 1983 as a van, truck and Suburban conversion company selling high end customization services all over the United States. Bitten by the racing bug, owner Frank Gilchrist formed alliances that led to painting car bodies, trucks and trailers on the NHRA circuit. As after- market customization demand slowed in the early 2000’s, Frank decided to close the doors at Texas Stagecoach. Frank leased out most of the 19 acre property, ultimately to oilfield equipment suppliers and manufacturers. New alliances were formed and in 2012, Frank and his brother Grant found an opportunity to help manufacturer’s with their coatings and metal preservation knowledge. Grant opened the paint shop up, initially, to serve the needs of tenants. Soon, Texas Stagecoach was growing and offering a new level of service to their select clientele. Our coatings and materials preservation business continues to grow as we partner with manufacturers to finish their product and surpass expectations of their customers. Frank is still around, and acts in advisory capacity. Most of his time is spent pursuing his first love at
