Anyone who has a continuous smile on his face conceals a toughness that is almost frightening.

I spool up new sites daily and am usually indexed within 24 hours (at least the index is started). Often these days it's near instantaneous.

1) Put up a robots.txt as already suggested http://html5css3box.com/robotstxt-generator/
2) Create and submit a sitemap (also list in robots, I use screaming frog for this but you can probably find something free on google)
3) Create a Google+ Places for Business for your company, with that URL in the description
4) Post a G+ introduction post, linking your URL
5) Link back to your G+ profile from your site using rel=publisher (also link out to any other social properties)
6) Submit your site/business to legit business directories. Spend a few hours at this, your goal is to generate business citations. If you want to use a service, I recommend Neustar Localeze or MozLocal. If you want to put in serious effort, I recommend https://www.whitespark.ca/local-citation-finder

It's possible that your domain is blacklisted in some database, but more likely Google just thinks it's too thin to bother indexing and possibly spam as your backlink profile is almost non-existent and the site is so small.

7) Build more pages with solid content. Google wants these pages at minimum:
7a) About
7b) Terms of Service
7c) Privacy Policy
7d) In addition, create a page for each section (Consulting, Design, Manufacturing)

8) Mark up your footer business address with schema:
code:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/LocalBusiness">
<a itemprop="url" href="http://www.epocean.com/"><div itemprop="name"><strong>EP Oceanographic, LLC</strong></div></a>
<div itemprop="address" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/PostalAddress">
<span itemprop="streetAddress">5 Spinnaker Ln</span><br />
<span itemprop="addressLocality">Pocasset</span>, <span itemprop="addressRegion">MA</span> <span itemprop="postalCode">02559</span> <span itemprop="addressCountry">USA</span>
</div>
</div>
Those steps should get you indexed pretty quickly. Some of them aren't technically "indexing" tricks but the goal is to send Google enough signals that your site is a legit site, for a legit business, and deserves to be indexed. I'm assuming you've done all of your due diligence already with Webmaster Tools to see if there are any Fetch errors.
