  • About

    American Appliance Products had its beginnings in
    1991. Its 40,000 square-foot building was located
    on Willis Road in the Reidtown Community of
    Newport. AAP was owned by the Sisler brothers,
    whom also owned D & H Manufacturers.

    Four years later AAP moved to its current 165,000
    square-foot building. During the following years,
    the business expanded; the plating line from D & H
    Manufacturing in Ohio was relocated to Newport.
    A year later, HVAC production was added and a
    paint line was installed for the HVAC products.
    A decade after its beginnings, AAP purchased
    Feldkircher Wire in Madison, Tennessee. With this
    acquisition, they expanded even more, adding
    porcelain-coating capabilities.

    In 2011, the company purchased PMC in Cleveland,
    Ohio and moved the motor mounts and zinc-hoist
    line from Cleveland to Newport. These changes
    required a 6,000 square-foot addition to the

    During the following years, the business continued
    to grow which led the move of the existing
    warehouse to a leased 102,000 square-foot
    warehouse on Thinwood Drive.

    In 2014, the company went through a difficult time
    when a fire destroyed the paint line and
    approximately 20,000 squared feet of the building.
    The AAP team worked together to recover from
    this adverse event. By 2016, AAP had added
    40,000 squared feet to their facilities and a new
    paint line with line-zinc capability.
