In 1885, Ashbel Merrel Leonard started a nursery as a hobby in his backyard in Piqua, Ohio. By 1912 he and his sons Parker and Stanley established A.M. Leonard & Sons as a nursery/landscaping service. The business was further developed in 1928 when A. M. and his youngest son John started a wholesale horticultural tool and supply company serving nursery and landscape customers. In 1941, following the death of A. M. Leonard, John became the President of the company. John’s forte was customer service. He mailed out 7,500 pocket-sized catalogs per year and monitored the purchases of each customer. John kept impeccable notes. When an order was not received from a customer within a year, John would contact the customer personally to ask how his organization might be of better service. The call usually resulted in a sale. Since only the finest quality tools were offered, customers always knew that when they bought something from the Piqua based company, they would receive the highest quality.
Howard Kyle became a partner with John Leonard in February 1964. Like the Leonard’s, Howard had a strong background in the nursery and mail order businesses. His family owned Springhill Nursery in Tipp City, Ohio. Howard quickly learned the A. M. Leonard operation. Ill health caused John Leonard to retire early, and Howard took over as sole owner inheriting a staff of 8. Howard and the staff expanded the catalog and merchandising operations emphasizing customer service, product dependability, and fast order response serving growers, landscapers, foresters, arborists, contractors, golf courses, resorts, grounds management and gardeners. In 1979 continuous growth caused the company to move again to a 20,000 square foot facility with 15 employees. Fourteen years later, in November of 1993, the company made a major commitment to its customers and the community by constructing a new 50,000 square foot facility.
In 1996, A.M. Leonard produced its first Retail Catalog to reach the serious home gardener. In 2005, as this segment of the business continued to grow, A.M. Leonard re-introduced the Retail publication as A.M. Leonard’s Gardeners Edge, offering gardeners the quality and selection they couldn’t find locally.
In 1999, A.M. Leonard introduced an industry exclusive Corporate Account Program. This service provides their professional customers with a dedicated Account Manager (single point of contact) who is truly devoted to learning and understanding their business and is invested in their continued success. Their goal will always be to meet or exceed your needs and expectations.
Also in 1999, A.M. Leonard introduced its line of A.M. Leonard Brand Tools. The A.M. Leonard line of tools offers the quality and features that most manufacturers aren’t willing to make –– all at a price that saves money and helps produce results you can stand behind.
The Internet has added another exciting dimension to the daily business activity at A.M. Leonard as their presence there continues to grow with two company web sites and sales through Amazon.com.
A.M. Leonard keeps in close touch with local customers through their Counter Sales in the company Showroom. Here professionals and homeowners enjoy picking up their product on the spot and getting right back to the job. In May 2005 Howard Kyle passed away at the age of 94 while still working six days a week. Today, under the leadership of Gregory Stephens, grandson of Howard Kyle, A.M. Leonard’s state-of-the-art Distribution facility has expanded to over 100,000 square feet with more than 100 dedicated employees. A. M. Leonard, Inc. continues today as a leader in the horticultural tool and supply business with emphasis on doing business the “old fashioned way”. They offer quality products, superior customer service and a selection of over 7,000 items. A.M. Leonard understands customers have a choice on where to shop and pledges to continue its tradition of exceptional products and service.

From a Vision and 5 Products to Hundreds of products spanning 3 Industries and Worldwide Distribution.
In 1987, our founders had a vision of a highly flexible, system of products to mark Golf Course boundaries and hazards. The system would be totally modular. Components could be mixed and matched, a veritable”erector set” for the Golf Course Superintendent.
Markers, Inc. Golf Course Equipment
The system would consist of an in ground component to permanently mark locations, a color coded upright (post) and a variety of cap configurations to perform specific tasks. From that initial vision, dozens of product adaptations plus material changes and manufacturing technologies enabled Markers, Inc. to grow from a 5 product company to an organization that now boasts hundreds of different items with products marketed worldwide. These products are marketed under the brand name of MarkSmart™. We have also become the proud owner of many U.S. Patents for our Golf Products.
Athletic Field Marking Systems
Later, with second generation leadership in place, the company diversified into the Athletic marketplace. Many of the product concepts developed for Golf, with material modifications, led to an innovative method of marking athletic fields. Our MarkSmart™ Lining Kits enabled personnel to safely and permanently mark Football, Soccer, Baseball and dozens of other athletic fields requiring lines, in about 1/3 the time previously required. Natural extensions to our Lining Kits included Marking Paint, Stencils and a broad range of Game Day Markers for dozens of sports. Recent additions to the product line include: Temporary Outfield & Event Fencing for indoor or outdoor applications, labor-saving recycled rubber products for Baseball/Softball fields and many more.
Garden and Yard Products
Still another market opportunity was realized when some of our products found their way to the company owner’s yard as protective devices to prevent damage to Flower beds, a highly visible Driveway Marker, an innovative and inexpensive American Flag Pole and a unique method to protect vegetable and floral gardens from critters. These developments led to our Garden and Yard Product Line,.
In less than 28 years, Markers, Inc. has grown from “a Vision” with a limited product line, to a multimillion dollar organization. As the company evolved the marketing strategy developed from trade show and minimal space advertising support, to multifaceted marketing programs selling direct to consumers, through distributors, catalog marketers, and now via the Internet.
