Our History

August Electronics was founded in 1991, by former co-workers Jack Francis and Peter Wilson. Both men had deep and successful roots in the electronics industry, and believed that by teaming up together, they could offer something unique and valuable to the market.

In the early years, August Electronics combined product development with manufacturing to build value in the company and provide solutions for their customers. Eventually, product design was phased out in order to focus entirely on developing a world-class manufacturing operation. The company’s design legacy allows them to bring a unique perspective to their customers, particularly as they navigate through the NPI process, and subsequent product optimization.

Over the ensuing years, August Electronics has grown their capabilities and customer base, funding growth entirely through operational proceeds. The company has sustained their long term growth by carefully considering each new business opportunity, and participating only in those that can provide a mutual benefit to all stakeholders.

In 1995, Rick Kobluk was brought on as a third partner in August Electronics. Mr. Kobluk brought with him a strong background in product support and electrical certifications, as well as a familiarity with the existing customer base.

All three owners remain intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of the company.
