The George Yardley Company has provided products and services in the southwest United States since 1960. Prior to starting the company, our eponymous founder graduated in engineering from Stanford, served in the United States Navy, played in the National Basketball Association, worked on missile designs with Robertshaw-Fulton, did facility design engineering for Fluor Corporation, and worked for free in the NBA off-season to enable himself to start the George Yardley Company in January in 1960.
