Oasis Off Road Mfg was established in 1996 by John and Connie Williams to address the needs of off road enthusiasts who drive their vehicles on both highway and trails, and reduce their tire pressure for better traction and ride when four wheeling. From the very beginning it has been a family operation, with their two children growing up in, helping out, and learning the family business from the time they were little.
To most off roaders, the task of actually airing down large tires by hand is tedious and time consuming. Seeking a better solution John developed a deflation device that could be screwed on to the valve stem of a tire to deflate it to a preset pressure and stop automatically, even while driving the vehicle down a trail. Thus the first generation of Trailhead Automatic Tire Deflators was born.
Since they were in the deflation business, the re-inflation business was the natural next step. After distributing and using a variety of compressors and tanks from other manufacturers, it became obvious that every one of them was lacking in some way, especially when used on large tires. In 2001 John developed the Trailhead Air Compressors to address the need for better compressor performance, which resulted in the most powerful DC air compressor in the world.
As time went on, the compressor side of their manufacturing business grew considerably. Since their compressors were highly useful in many applications other than off road, such as service trucks, tow trucks, maintenance trucks, motor coaches, agriculture equipment, and most on-board compressed air requirements, in 2005 they changed their name to simply Oasis Manufacturing, and sold the manufacturing rights of the deflators to focus exclusively on manufacturing air compressors.
