About Us

August Industries Inc.Welcome to August Industries Inc. one of the largest Bauer Compressor distributors in the United States today. August Industries Inc. was founded in 1981 by Porter H. Stiles a former scuba instructor and dive shop owner. Porter early on saw the value and importance of the single largest purchase dive shops make – the air compressor system. As stated by Porter, “frankly, without a reliable compressor system – you’re just a snorkeling center.” Dive shops and dive resorts were August Industries’ focus initially, as it was the biggest market user of high pressure air compressors. Presidential Award August Industries setup numerous dive shops and dive centers throughout the Southwestern United States and the Caribbean. Following 9/11 the importance of municipal fire departments having a reliable source of breathing air becomes our new market emphasis.
Today, the municipal and volunteer fire departments represent our largest customer base, creating new opportunities and service obligations for us.
