Originally started in 1968 by Norman Frankum, Frankum AC & Heating has now become a second generation family owned business now owned by his son, Stephen Frankum, since 1992. How did it all begin? Here's the story.
In the early 1960's, my dad, Norman Frankum, took an interest in refrigeration work. He began as an operator for a gas plant in Falfurrias, Texas where I was later born in 1963. In the midst of being a new father and working as an operator, my dad would work part time at a dairy farm and other places as a helper. In 1965, the plant shut down and we moved back to where my mom and dad grew up, Brazoria County in little ole Sweeny, Texas. Growing up, my dad worked various construction jobs until he encountered a workplace injury when he fell from a scaffold that had collapsed. He had broken both of his legs. It was during his recovery, that my dad began working toward getting his certification in Refrigeration and HVAC. In 1968, once his injuries had healed, my dad started Frankum AC & Heating in Sweeny, Texas. Fast forward to 1977, my dad made another career change and worked for a school district until he was able to retire in 1995. He continued part-time at Frankum AC & Heating until his injuries worsened preventing him from working any longer.
In 1987, I joined the U.S. Army where I served for three years. During my third year of service I began taking HVAC and Refrigeration courses. After leaving the Army, I came home and worked under my dad while holding other full-time jobs. In January 1992, I obtained my own license to contract. Since then, I have been full time in the HVAC and Refrigeration industry. While primarily working for myself in the commercial, industrial, and residential markets, occassionally I have partnered with other major companies. In June 2018, we reopened Frankum AC & Heating after nine years of only commercial and industrial work. We are growing again and the prospects have never looked better.
