THE AUGUST WINTER & SONS STORY... A STORY OF SERVICE
from   1915 * *
In 1915 when August Winter was a pioneer jour-
neyman steam fitter, times were different than
they are today. All heating plants were fired with
coal, and the modern heating ease which we con-
sider common place today was unknown. Service
calls were made by street car, or by team; all
tools used were strictly hand tools; and wages
for a skilled worker were about $5.00 a day.
But even back then, August Winter's thoughts
were of the day when he would own his own
business and would give increasingly better heat-
ing service...
... to   1957
Now serving you from our large, modern plant;
August Winter & Sons have written a story of
SERVICE through the years. The present firm
was founded in 1930 by August Winter and his
two sons, Roy and Wally. In the early days, we
operated from a double garage in back of our
house at 413 N. Bennett Street; and our criterion
was good, prompt service, as well as expert work-
manship.
Today, we are incorporated as August Winter &
Sons, Inc. We have completed the fifth addition
to our plant; employ over 40 skilled employees,
and have a fleet of 14 trucks and company cars.
We have expanded our services and now offer
complete residential, commercial and industrial
HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING & VEN-
TILATING SERVICE.
