Who We Are

Trent Technologies, Inc. is an engineering research and development company founded in 1993 by Warren Trent, his brother Curtis Trent and his son Paul Trent.  For many years, air-conditioning systems at Paul’s printing company intermittently leaked condensate onto work in progress and machinery, costing thousands of dollars each episode.  Warren Trent, a retired aerospace engineer, was consulted about designing condensate traps for Paul’s HVAC units. In 1986 Warren, his brother Curtis a retired university professor, and Paul began research for a solution.  The solution came to be known as the CostGard™ Condensate Drain Seal, which was specifically designed to remove a liquid from a pressurized chamber.  
All CostGard™ products are engineered, manufactured and assembled in Tyler Texas, USA.

Paul D. Trent


Retired, B.Sc Business and Economics – William Jewel College, Harlaxton Study Center, England

Background & Experience
Early in his career Paul Trent served as Zone Manager Kraft Foods Los Angeles Food Service-Western Division. He left his role there to open Printmaster Printing, a commercial printing company where he experienced costly property damage caused by p-trap failures on the air conditioning systems.
His print company was thriving, running large-scale projects for a wide range of clients. The condensate drain line on his air conditioner repeatedly clogged and caused water to back up, then run onto print jobs in progress. When his father invented a solution, Paul knew they had an innovative product that could be revolutionary for the industry.
Working with his father as Vice President of Trent Technologies, Paul was responsible for production, marketing, and distribution of CostGard™ Condensate Drain Seal; Later as President and owner of Trent Technologies, he was responsible for all company operations.
