Paul Franks

Director of Sales & technical projects

Paul transformed a Heavy Highway contracting firm to a sports field specific design and construction company. While constructing many local high school tracks and fields, in the mid 1980’s he began constructing synthetic turf playing field systems. In the early 1990’s, many professional teams began building new stadiums featuring high performance natural turf systems with vertical drainage. His first professional stadium project was Jacobs Field for the Cleveland Indians which then led to additional opportunities to expand on a national level.  Several years later, Paul helped design and build one of the first heated playing field systems.  As a pioneer in this industry, he has developed respect with all the key players in the industry because of his deep knowledge and valuable experience. He is called on by many firms to consult and render his opinion as to the intricacies in field construction and development. Paul has worked with elite sports organizations like the New York Yankees, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs and Royals, Houston Texans, and many more.
