Flasher Equipment Company

Our History

Flasher Equipment Company was founded by Frank Gruen in 1956.  Herbert Gruen, Frank’s son, joined the company in 1960.  He was a forward thinker and visionary.  Through the years, Herbie was instrumental in bringing innovation after innovation in the pavement marking and traffic control business to the City and State as well as lobbying in Washington DC for the Federal Highway Bill.  A focus on the safety of drivers and road construction employees are top priority.  In 2015, Herbie was awarded the ATSSA Industry Achievement Award for his significant achievements and contributions to ATSSA and the Roadway Safety Industry.


Flasher Equipment Company is currently in two locations.  In 2012, FEC opened a second office located in Jarrell, TX to help with the demand of business requests in this area.    In 2020, Flasher Equipment Co made a significant move from its downtown San Antonio location to the newly restored building which was previously the Levi Strauss manufacturing plant.  With this renovation and a significant employer, it is considered an anchor in the regeneration of the west side of San Antonio. Our experienced management team is customer focused and committed to delivering high quality service and solutions for our business partners.
