Becoming an Industrial Coatings Company: The Gartner History

Gartner Coatings was originally founded as F.W. Gartner Company in 1923 to distribute construction equipment. It operated on the east side of downtown Houston and over the years, the company expanded into three divisions for Equipment Rental, Blasting and Painting, and Thermal Spraying. The company has operated as a family-owned company and currently is owned and operated by a third-generation member of the family, George Gartner.

In 2000, the Equipment Rental division of F.W. Gartner Company was sold to Nations Rent. At that time, George Gartner reshaped the Blasting and Painting division as Gartner Coatings and moved it to its current location.

The Gartner family has been a well-respected part of the Houston business community for more than 90 years. Gartner Coatings is committed to our customer’s needs - their success is the reason we continue to be an integral part of the coating applications market in the Houston area.
