ABOUT AMERICAN YARD PRODUCTS...
American Yard Products had its genesis as a division of the Roper Corporation, a producer of major appliances and outdoor products. In 1989, shortly after Roper was purchased by General Electric Co., the outdoor products unit was acquired by AB Electrolux and named American Yard Products.
