Porter’s Exclusive WV Sports Equipment Distributor

AIP is Porter’s exclusive provider in West Virginia for quality athletic and recreational equipment.

Porter’s history and heritage as a worldwide supplier of athletic and recreational equipment dates back well over a century. The original company founded in 1868, manufactured pulleys, hardware and hayloft equipment for barns. The manufacturing technology for these products accounts for the eventual carry-over into playground equipment as well as ceiling and wall suspended folding basketball backstops.

Some of the many innovations in basketball equipment that can be attributed to Porter are:

  • Originator of the glass backboard
  • Originator of the “Fan-shaped” backboard
  • Originator of full perimeter striping on backboards

Porter provides solutions for basketball backboards, volleyball standards, gym dividers plus equipment for baseball, hockey, lacrosse, field hockey and wrestling along with covers, mat movers and so much more for your multi-use sports facilities.
