Original Blynd and Tower fullFranks Manufacturing – The Blynd is now owned and operated by James Franks.  Our new location is at 1336 West Blanco Road, San Antonio, TX 78232.

The company's goal is to create custom formed parts for various businesses and to manufacture those parts with polyethylene or ABS plastic material.   In 2020 we began manufacturing a plastic hunting blind using polyethylene material with a UV stabilizer that will enable the blind to last for 20-30 years.  The Blynd hunting blind is designed to be practical, durable, economical, lightweight, and virtually maintenance free.


The Blynd has had minimal changes over the past 42 years due to the original design being almost flawless.  The door was changed in 1986 from a sliding half door to a hinged half door.  In 2009, with the request of many customers which were still hunting out of their 20-year-old plus blinds, we introduced a full-size door which can easily replace the half door by replacing the half door panel with the full-size door panel.

In 2016 we added a bow blind to our product line.  The Bow Blynd is versatile to accommodate bow or rifle hunting.  It also comes in a 4X4 and a 4X8 with custom shatterproof windows mounted with quiet hinges.  

The photo above is of our original black blind with the double sliding door.  It was at that location for over 20+ years!
